The Research Council (RC) was established to assume responsibilities for all aspects of the administration and allocation of the Health Care and Promotion Scheme. The RC is supported by the Research Fund Secretariat and the Grant Review Board (GRB).


The RC functions as a broadly based policy group. It sets guidelines and procedures for grant applications. The assessment panel provides critical appraisal on applications for health promotion projects. The funding decision of the RC is final.


The RC comprises prominent members of the health care system. The GRB has brought together experts with technical skills and experience in a wide spectrum of health sciences and experts in health promotion to support the work of assessing grant applications and reports.
