The Health Research Foundation’s (HRF) research projects are funded by Innovative Medicines Canada
members, as Canada’s innovative pharmaceutical industry remains firmly committed to supporting and
investing in health systems research that improves health outcomes for Canadians.
HRF-funded research projects not only examine solutions for timely issues impacting Canadian health
systems, but also look to analyze and develop meaningful actions that will help protect Canadians
against future health crises. Past projects have explored the possibilities of using artificial intelligence to
detect lung cancer sooner, identified lessons learned from the COVID-19 pandemic for future pandemic
preparedness, and highlighted barriers to health equity in Canada.
Ultimately, the HRF is a vital partner in safeguarding public health, enhancing Canada’s health systems,
and ensuring a resilient society in the face of future challenges.
