Rural health research in Canada: at the crossroads

Aust J Rural Health. 2000 Oct;8(5):261-5.


Rural health research in Canada is at the crossroads. Jolted by the establishment of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, rural health researchers are trying hard to overcome past benign neglect and the lack of cohesion and collaboration within the rural health research community. Although there is considerable catching-up to do, rural health research in Canada has a firm foundation. Backed by a growing network of rural health research centres, researchers are searching for ways to work together in order to advance rural health research and the health and wellbeing of rural Canadians.
