The WAHTN has been awarded with a $3.2 million grant from Lotterywest which will be used to establish a Consumer and Community Health Research Network in Western Australia. The initiative was announced by Minister John Day on 7 July.

WAHTN Executive Director, Professor John Challis said “This award will allow WAHTN to increase the involvement of end users and consumers in medical research; from asking the right question, carrying out the research in an understandable manner and applying the research outcomes to real problems, the consumer literally becomes one of the research team. This network will be the first of its kind in Australia, and possible the first of its kind in the world”
