SAHMRI. Inspired research, better health for all.

Consumer and Community Engagement

A commitment to improving consumer and community engagement in health and medical research

SAHMRI has joined forces with the Health Consumers Alliance of SA Inc (HCA) to bring researchers, consumers and community members together to tackle some of the greatest health issues confronting us today. 

A framework for better engagement 

We are using our co-research framework to engage consumers and community members in planning research priorities, in the projects themselves, and in working out how to make sure our research really does improve the health of individuals and our community. 

The framework was informed by a review of literature and current practice from across the world.

Get involved 

We need your help to understand how we can undertake and deliver research with the greatest impact.
