At NIHI our mission is to discover, develop, test and deliver innovative approaches to prevent disease, improve people's health, reduce health inequalities, and enable the delivery of more effective and equitable healthcare in New Zealand and overseas. To achieve this we partner with individuals, communities, clinicians, and policy makers involved in health care.

Whether undertaking traditional clinical trials or innovative technological solutions to healthcare problems we draw on over 25 years of robust clinical trial, project management and service delivery experience. We publish our research findings in leading journals and disseminate widely through other means with the aim of optimal reach.
