Ministry of Health Research Division

Research advocacy section is there to advocate for the advancement of research and promote understanding on the importance of research. The section is equipped with necessary skills to meaningfully assist stakeholders and the general public in understanding and prioritizing questions concerning the research process in order to increase public understanding and support for research.

The work we do in research advocacy is supported by a strong evidence base which intends to raise people’s understanding of why research is important. Based on the critical information we aim to create a research platform that empowers people by making the right information available at the right time and easily accessible to those who need it.

A significant part of the research advocacy section is to work with community-based groups and various stakeholders in the research field. The advocates give a different viewpoint on the research process and provide important perspectives on how to improve the research process.
