PHRN logo

The Population Health Research Network (PHRN) is a ground breaking program which has created Australia’s first national data linkage network. Founded in 2009, this national collaboration enables existing data from around Australia to be brought together and made available for important research.

Established with the backing of the Australian Government (as part of the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure) and supported by every Australian state and territory, the PHRN has built a network that enables existing health data from around the nation to be brought together and made available for vital health and non-health related research purposes. The PHRN enables population research of national relevance which results in improved policy making and service delivery. We use global best practice in maximising the benefits to the Australian community whilst preserving individual privacy.

The PHRN is a national network coordinated by the Program Office located in Perth, Western Australia and supports six state/territory data linkage units, one national data linkage unit and a secure data laboratory. The PHRN also provides a number of national eResearch tools and services to assist research access linked data efficiently and securely.
