The article focuses on several approaches for allocating health research money. It states that the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) allocates roughly 1 billion dollar a year of public money for health research in various areas including biomedical, clinical, and health systems services. Furthermore, Marco Di Buono of the Heart and Stroke Foundation says that funding research on what different diseases have in common is a better approach to allocating health research funds.
