Welcome to Our Alliance!

The Strategy for Patient-Oriented Research (SPOR) Evidence Alliance is a partnership between researchers, patients and members of the public, healthcare providers, health system managers, policy-makers, and other decision-makers across Canada (and beyond) who are committed to building a Canadian health system that is increasingly informed and improved using the best available health research evidence.

The SPOR Evidence Alliance is jointly funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) under the SPOR initiative and 41 partners from public and not-for-profit sectors across Canada. Together, we work towards creating a collaborative research environment that is centred around patients and health system decision-makers as part of Canada’s SPOR initiative.
