The Research and Evaluation Directorate of the Health Services and Promotion Branch financed research projects, demonstration projects and studies as well as provided money for training and assistance to researchers, under the National Health Research and Development Program. In addition, it carried out short-term policy research and evaluation of Branch projects.
The records in this accession consist of research grant files funded by the Directorate and relevant to its responsibilities for the prevention of illness, and the promotion, maintenance, and restoration of Canadians' health. The files contain such documentation as weekly summaries of activities performed, paid participant earning records, project financial reports, and final reports. The project topics cover such subjects as non-medical use of drugs, narcotics addiction, health problems in outlying regions, mobility among native people, prevention and health education, and a host of others.
The records in this accession are from specific record blocks.
