Lutruwita/Tasmania has one university, one primary health network, one State health system and many independent and community-connected healthcare providers and organisations.
This puts us in a unique position to bring together researchers, clinicians, policy-makers and communities and focus our joint efforts on improving health and wellbeing for the people who live here.
Having worked together over decades towards a shared vision, the Collaboration partners formed the first Research Translation Centre for Tasmania in 2018, called the Tasmanian Collaboration for Health Improvement which connects health research activities across the State.
By understanding what’s happening across Tasmania, we can foster greater collaboration, cooperation, and connection to deliver health research that matters to Tasmanians.
The Collaboration has a membership of over 400 individuals and organisations, united in a drive for better health for all.
Our members include:
Community groups and individuals
- Health consumers
- Peak bodies
- Industry partners Service providers Funders
