General practice is the most commonly used health service in Australia, reaching millions every year. Yet only 2% of National Health and Medical Research Council grants were awarded for primary care research health funding.

Ensuring the best possible health outcomes for all Australians means investing in research where the majority of people seek support and treatment – general practice.

The RACGP Foundation, and our partners, fund research in primary healthcare settings, building a relevant and immediate evidence-base that is purpose-built for primary healthcare.
