In August 2018 the Foundation for Alcohol Research and Education (FARE) made its submission to Australian Government’s Research Australia in relation to the Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF). The MRFF is a $20 billion investment in the health of Australians, our economy and the sustainability of our health system.
In its submission, FARE provides a response to two of the questions posed by Research Australia in relation to the MRFF:
1. Is the current balance in spending between the different Strategic Platforms right? If not, how can the next Priorities be used to influence this balance? and
2. Does research into Public and Preventive Health have a place in the MRFF? If so, what does this look like, and what should it fund?
