HRCI conducted a survey of its members in December 2020 to ascertain the impact of Covid-19 on Irish Health Research Charities. The results published in Feb 2021 demonstrate the impact on income, patients, research, and charity activities.
On January 28th we launched our 2021 position paper: Renewal through health research.
It lays out a series of critical health research actions to help create a post-Covid Ireland where healthcare is world-class and based on evidence.
It calls for:

We welcome you using it and sharing it, to help achieve our common goals.
