NZ$800,000 for health research partnerships

New Zealand’s Health Research Council has awarded around NZ$800,000 for research that promotes links between the nation’s universities and health delivery organisations, it was announced on 20 August.

The funding will support four projects focused on adolescent depression, treatment of cardiovascular disease, effective psychological therapies through the use of computers, and improved residential care for the elderly.

The awards were made as part of the Research Partnerships for New Zealand Health Delivery programme introduced in 2010. Research funded under this scheme requires collaboration between health researchers and health delivery organisations.
