PHRN Australia & HDRN Canada

Population Health Research Network (PHRN) Australia, a leading organization that enables existing data from around Australia to be brought together and made available for research announced on 1 September 2022 a new partnership with Health Data Research Network (HDRN) Canada.

As researchers and policymakers continue to face public health challenges that transcend international borders, this partnership signifies a new commitment to advance population data linkage in both countries by learning from one another.

Members from PHRN and HDRN Canada gave a joint presentation at this year’s International Population Data Linkage Network (IPDLN) Conference on the topic, “Cross-jurisdictional data access processes and coordination in two countries: key learnings and innovative approaches”. Their presentation outlined the two organizations’ respective approaches to supporting the discovery of available data resources and coordinating applications and approvals for cross-jurisdictional data access. The two networks also jointly facilitated a pre-conference workshop entitled, Connecting and Sharing with Industry.

Future collaboration include joint staff professional development opportunities, further exploration of methodological and/or technical innovation, and more.
