The Health Research Council of New Zealand (HRC) and PHARMAC (‘the funding partners’) formed a joint research initiative in 2016 to support innovative research and advance the strategic objectives of both organisations.

The focus of the 2020 Achieving Equitable Access to Medicines Request for Proposals (RFP) is to fund innovative, high-quality and value-added research that aligns with PHARMAC’s strategic priority to achieve equitable access to funded pharmaceuticals, and the HRC’s focus on building and strengthening the research evidence base to achieve health equity in Aotearoa New Zealand.

The RFP describes the research objectives and priority areas identified by the funding partners. Applicants will need to outline how their proposal addresses the RFP; provide a clear justification for the proposed approach; describe the project team’s ability to deliver the specific components of the study; and provide a fully costed budget.
