Health and Medical Research and the Future in NHMRC’s 75th Year. The Virtuous Cycle and economic benefits of health and medical research – 9 September 2011

Discussion Paper from the NHMRC CEO

“This discussion paper focuses on the economic benefits to Australia from public investment in health and medical research.

The support by governments and people of Australia through their taxes, as participants in research, through service on ethics committees and through donations to health and medical research charities is remarkable1. It is therefore important that, as health and medical researchers, we always take into account how society benefits from this support.

Benefits from health and medical research can be realised in several ways; prevention of ill health, better care of patients, a better health system itself, and through gains in our national economy and national wealth. In this paper, I have attempted to identify some of the economic benefits.”
