MINISTRY OF HEALTH FIJI LAUNCHES FIJI HEALTH RESEARCH PORTAL

MINISTRY OF HEALTH FIJI LAUNCHES FIJI HEALTH RESEARCH PORTAL

The Fiji Ministry of Health, through its National Health Research Unit and National Health Research and Ethics Committees strives for fair, open, and responsible conduct of health research.

To maximize accountability, efficiency, and transparency in health research, the Fiji Ministry of Health, and Fiji National University through its College of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences have collaboratively introduced an integrated online research management system called Fiji Health Research Portal. WHO supported the development of the system.

The Portal will provide public access to a registry of all the approved and ongoing research in Fiji from 1st November 2013 and a directory of domestic and international researchers doing health related research in Fiji.

The system will benefit researchers the most. To ensure protection of human research subjects, Fiji requires prior review of health related research proposals by the health research ethics review committees. With the launch of the portal, the researchers will be able to submit the proposal for ethics review anytime from anywhere in a paperless manner and can track the review status of their proposal.

Beginning 1st January 2014, all the health researchers in Fiji must submit their research proposals online for review by any of the two Ethics Review Committees operational in Fiji namely, College Health Research Ethics Review Commitee (CHRERC) at the Fiji National University’s College of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences, and the Fiji National Health Research Ethics Review Committee (FNHRERC) at the Ministry of Health.

To read more about the Portal and to submit research proposals, go to the http://health.gov.fj/fijihrp/

For any problems in the research proposal submission online, please contact Mrs. Mere Delai at the National Health Research Unit, Ministry of Health at mere.delai@govnet.gov.fj or call (679) 32157-70.
