The Goal: To stimulate collaborative, interdisciplinary primary care, and community based research and establish a practice-based research network among basic scientists, social scientists and clinical researchers, hereinafter called the Centre for Primary Care Research (CPCR).

Vision: To support and conduct research that will improve the access, effectiveness and quality of primary health care services and effectively promote community engagement. This is in the area of global health. CPCR will seek to be known nationally as a major source of information on primary care practice and recognized internationally for the excellence of the research supported, conducted and disseminated. The vision includes a commitment to building capacity within the primary care research community, and to forming productive, sustained partnerships with private and professional groups as well as other government organizations that share the goal of improved primary care services.
