Welcome to the Consumer and Community Involvement Program

Formerly known as the Consumer and Community Health Research Network (CCHRN) the Consumer and Community Involvement Program (CCIProgram) works with our universities, health and medical research institutes, health service providers and Non-Government organisations to bring together consumers and people with lived experience and connect them with health and medical researchers.
