The Inclusive Health Research awards have been established by Nature Awards in partnership with Takeda to celebrate those who are driving a more inclusive approach to health research and, in doing so, promote a future of greater health equity globally.

The Inclusive Health Research awards aim to:

  • Uncover innovation and best practice in inclusive health research that has been influenced by engagement with affected communities and their expert representatives.
  • Recognize, promote and support institutions and individuals who are contributing to a diverse, patient- and affected community-inclusive research ecosystem.
  • Build a library of case studies to share — and encourage wider adoption of — new ideas and best practice in the co-production of research to advance global health equity
