Overview

Organizations participating in the Health Research Alliance represent a variety of types of nongovernmental funders of health research, including voluntary health agencies, private foundations, and operating foundations. All of these organizations share a common interest in speeding the translation of biomedical science discoveries into applications that improve health, and in identifying and adopting best practices in funding health research.
