2021 Public Opinion Poll on Health & Medical Research & Innovation

Support for health and medical research funding is at its highest level in more than a decade.

Research Australia’s 2021 Public Opinion Poll has found that Australians rank health and medical research in the top three priorities for government, sitting only behind improvements to hospitals and healthcare and improvements to education standards.

More than one-third of respondents to the nationwide survey said the pandemic had prompted them to change their views on the importance of health and medical research and think that more funding should flow to the sector.

All this and more in the Research Australia 2021 Public Opinion Poll on Health & Medical Research & Innovation.


The polling for this report was generously conducted by Roy Morgan Research, a Research Australia Member.
