Heart of Australia Research Institute

Though there is more being done today to bring greater access to healthcare services in rural, remote, and First Nations communities, Australians living in these areas are often still excluded from participating in clinical trials due to a number of barriers such as distance, cultural differences, geographic isolation, and workforce capacity.

In 2024 Heart of Australia launched the Heart of Australia Research Institute (HARI) to help facilitate the inclusion of country patients into clinical trials, giving them an equal chance of accessing innovative treatments and solutions not yet available to the general public.
