Why do we need the Join Us register?

Research is critical to the health of Australians, but one of the most difficult things about conducting research is finding the right participants. This makes it harder to answer important research questions.

The Join Us register will help to solve this problem.

How does it work?

The Join Us register recruits large numbers of people to address our nation’s health needs, starting with COVID-19 prevention and treatment.

Participants consent to allowing the register to securely link their personal information to other health information such as that collected from hospital visits or when medications are prescribed. This enables the register to match participants to studies they are eligible for.

What are the benefits?

Opting in will help our world class researchers find answers to medical challenges facing us all – preventing disease, and finding cures and treatments that can benefit ourselves, our families, neighbours and even those we don’t know.

It will boost research capability in Australia as well as having long term economic benefits by attracting international studies.

Information for researchers


The Join Us register will recruit large numbers of adults into research addressing some of Australia’s biggest health challenges and will help to connect interested and eligible participants with researchers, making it easier to reach study recruitment targets.

How is personal data secured?
