FOREWORD

Since its inception, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) has adopted a broad and inclusive approach to partnerships. Through relationships forged by our 13 Institutes, a number of Branches and several Initiatives, we have engaged in partnerships with the public sector, private industry, voluntary health organizations and international agencies across the globe. But why do we partner? Simply put, we partner because we understand that we are only part of the Canadian health research enterprise. CIHR recognizes that effective health research needs the collective effort of the many people and organizations who are committed to making Canadians healthier. We need to work with our partners to identify gaps, fund the best research and translate new knowledge into better health for Canadians, improved health care and economic growth
