FIJI HEALTH RESEARCH PORTAL

 

The Fiji online Health Research Portal is another milestone initiative by the Fiji Ministry of Health Research Unit and Research Department of CMNHS, FNU, which provides a platform for an integrated online research management system for all health research in Fiji.

The realisation of this online portal has been made possible through technical support from WHO. The portal aims to improve accountability, efficiency and quality of health research conducted in Fiji through transparency and streamlining of the ethics review process.

The Portal can be used to:

Submit research proposals anytime from anywhere for review by any of the two Research Ethics Review Committees (CHRERC at CMNHS, FNU and FNHRERC at MoH) operating in Fiji. As a Researcher, you will need to register on the Portal.

Once registered you will have a permanent account that will enable you to submit research proposal online and also track review status of your proposal.

Search ongoing and completed health research from January 2014 onwards through a publicly accessible research registry. No registration or log in is required to search the ongoing research and completed research.

Access complete research reports for all research started since January 2014 once the research is completed. [Since the system was launched only in December 2013, there are no research reports in the system at present, but will be added as and when a research is completed over time.]

Access information on all the applicable guidelines, rules, and regulations related to health research in Fiji (being added…)

Access a “Researchers’ Directory” containing information on the national and international researchers doing research in Fiji.
