The Health Promotion Demonstration Research Grants Scheme was established in 2000 to support Local Health Districts to conduct priority-driven and rigorously-designed health promotion intervention research rarely funded through other grant schemes.
The aims of the Scheme were to:
contribute to the knowledge base for health promotion;
build an evidence-base to support policy development in priority areas such as tobacco control, the promotion of healthy weight, and the prevention of falls in older people.
The Scheme was designed to:
encourage health promotion research across the health sector;
develop partnerships for health promotion research between Local Health Districts and Universities;
develop partnerships for health promotion research among stakeholders and agencies outside the health sector: for example, local government, the education sector, and non-government organisations.
