Research Investment for Priorities in Alcohol (RIPA) 2018/19 - GETS number 19944170

The Health Promotion Agency's (HPA) alcohol programme has a specific statutory function to undertake, or work with others, to research alcohol use and public attitudes to alcohol in New Zealand and problems associated with or consequent on, alcohol misuse. As part of delivering this function, HPA invests in a periodic research programme called Research Investment for Priorities in Alcohol (RIPA). HPA funds a number of projects under each RIPA investment round that provide good quality information on alcohol-related issues to inform both HPA's alcohol-related work programme and the wider sector. This research may have programme, policy, or further research implications. 

HPA is now inviting Respondents to submit detailed research proposals for the 2018/19 alcohol RIPA investment round that address one of the two following themes: 

  • Alcohol and co-morbidities
  • The impact of alcohol on others

HPA is interested in improving understanding of various aspects of these themes, and exploring how this understanding may contribute towards reducing harmful drinking behaviour. 

HPA is seeking to invest in one larger project (up to the $200,000 limit) and one or more smaller projects, so welcome smaller value proposals. Please note that questions and responses should be submitted via email. 

Please subscribe to the GETS notice to receive access to the RFP and Response Form.
