At its core, CAIHR is a scientific and knowledge organisation whose work informs and catalyses transformation of policy and programs to empower the individual citizen to take charge of his/her personal health.
CAIHR focuses on health-related research which seeks to provide answers to the questions about how people can improve their health and maintain a good quality of life, from birth to adulthood and the policies needed to support this.
