Sax Institute

The Sax Institute is an independent, non-profit organisation whose mission is to improve health, health services and programs by increasing the use of research in policy making. We aim to be the bridge between health researchers and policy makers, giving each the tools to work more closely together for the health benefit of all Australians.

Our objectives are to improve policy makers’ access to existing research, generate new research for use in policy and to develop and test innovative new ways to increase the use of research evidence in policy making.

Our membership spans 37 public health and health services research groups and their universities.
