Submission to Research Australia in relation to the Medical Research Future Fund

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?

FARE supports policy reforms that contribute to a reduction in alcohol-related harms in Australia. Our policy work is informed by the evidence of what is most effective in reducing alcohol-related harms. We support the progression of population-based health measures, which take into consideration the far reaching and complex impacts of alcohol-related harms.
