Understanding the Arthritis Research Landscape
We have a strong track record in policy and advocacy, reflected in the National Strategic Action Plan for Arthritis (the National Action Plan).
As identified in the National Action Plan, there is scope to adopt a more strategic and collaborative approach to arthritis research in Australia. At present, however, the National Action Plan does not specify precisely what the focus of this research should be. We have identified this an opportune time to harness its existing policy and advocacy work and review our research investment and advocacy strategy, we commissioned Research Australia to assist in this redevelopment.
This report is the first of three reports that Research Australia is preparing for Arthritis Australia. It presents:
- An articulation of the areas of research needed to support the strategic priorities identified in the National Strategic Action Plan for Arthritis;
- A preliminary gap analysis of existing arthritis research to inform where more research is needed to meet the priorities identified in the National Strategic Action Plan for Arthritis; and
- A map of stakeholders currently funding arthritis research in Australia and a summary of the types of research that have been funded by these stakeholders over the past three years.
