2022 heralds a new chapter in our 25 year history as we embark on an expanded program of support for public health that seeks to ensure our hospitals are counted amongst the very best in the world and seeks to ensure equitable access to the very best health care for every member of the community.  We have mandated a strategic plan to address unmet and underserved needs in Western Australia that will serve the short and long term needs in areas that present critical health issues to many members of our community; here in WA and beyond.  With an emphasis on research excellence, exemplary patient care and the prevention of disease for the preservation of health and wellbeing, the Foundation is committed to the following six focus areas:

1.         Early Career Research and Seed Funding (our traditional purpose) – investing in pioneering ideas while facilitating a culture of aspirational innovation in health research

2.         Family Health – committing to equal access for every child to world-leading public health services and supporting evidenced based interventions at the earliest possible moment for children who may be at risk of life-impacting disease 

3.         Men’s Health and Wellbeing – in response to the Western Australian Men’s Health and Wellbeing Policy (2019), support a holistic program of integrated mental and physical health programs to address the inequities of health outcomes for West Australian men and boys

4.         Aboriginal Health – establish a comprehensive research centre for collaborative, translational research for Aboriginal Health to bring together essential expertise to address the critical health needs of WA’s diverse Aboriginal population

5.         Melanoma Research – fund WA’s only dedicated melanoma research grant program to improve patient outcomes through ground-breaking advancements in diagnosis, treatment and care (first grants awarded November 2021)

6.         Education and Advocacy – to facilitate the translation of research and inform the public, funding bodies, policy makers and health providers of advancements in medicine to ensure West Australia’s public health services are the best in the world and access is equitable.

We look forward to working with all sectors of the West Australian community, public and private, to ensure the success of this strategic initiative and to achieve a depth of collaboration that will ensure the meaningful translation of the work undertaken for immediate and impactful outcomes.  In particular, we look to the overlap of all of the six focus areas as an opportunity to create change that will underpin both short and long-term decision making, action and practice.
