Health Translation Queensland

Health Translation Queensland is a partnership organisation that brings together 11 of Queensland’s major medical research institutes and health care providers, including Queensland Health, Children’s Health Queensland, Metro North Health, Metro South Health, West Moreton Health, Mater Group, The University of Queensland, Queensland University of Technology, QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute, Translational Research Institute, and CSIRO’s Australian e-Health Research Centre.

Health Translation Queensland’s efforts focus on applying best-evidenced research to the health challenges impacting the people of Queensland. We serve a population of more than 5 million diverse Queenslanders, from Tugun to the Torres Strait, and west beyond Mt Isa. We work closely with our partner organisations, and health and medical research institutes across the State, to channel their successes into actual public health outcomes.

Formerly known as Brisbane Diamantina Health Partners, in 2021 the name was changed to Health Translation Queensland to better reflect the scope and intent of the partnership, the role of research translation centres, and Health Translation Queensland’s vision – to improve population health outcomes across Queensland, through collaborative partnerships that translate scientific discovery and knowledge into practice.

Health Translation Queensland is accredited as an Advanced Health Research and Translation Centre by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC).
