NSW Regional Health Partners collaborate with a number of groups statewide and across Australia. Read more about these groups below: 


Australian Health Research Alliance

NSW Regional Health Partners (NSWRHP) is one of 14 Research Translation Centres (RTCs) across Australia that together form the Australian Health Research Alliance (AHRA). 

The Centres collaborate to develop and implement improvements in health service delivery and population health to ensure better health outcomes for all Australians.

The AHRA Council comprises the Directors of all member RTCs, including NSWRHP.

NSW Research Translation Centres’ Alliance

We work closely with Sydney Health Partners and Maridulu Budyari Gumal – The Sydney Partnership for Health, Education, Research and Enterprise (SPHERE) to advance translational health research and increase NSW’s research competitiveness in Australia and internationally.

The NSW RTC Alliance aims to strengthen translational research infrastructure to facilitate research through cooperation on research governance, clinical trials and data sharing. This allows us to develop and deliver state-wide projects that address health priority issues for NSW.


Spinifex Network

The Spinifex Network is a consortium and coalition of rural and regional health organisations. NSWRHP developed, funded, and led the establishment of this Network, which now comprises over 60 member organisations who have joined forces to advocate for funding for rural health and medical research.
