Governance Word Cloud3

NAPHRO brings together provincially mandated agencies that fund health research. Members recognizes that each operates within separate and evolving political and operational contexts with unique relationships to their stakeholders, including but not limited to the provincial and federal governments and research community.

The Alliance is led by two co-chairs and is supported by NAPHRO Secretariat. The co-chairs are appointed on a two-year rotating basis to guide and oversee the overall direction of NAPHRO’s initatives. Alliance members meet quarterly to share information and identify opportunities for collaborative work.
