The James Lind Alliance

The James Lind Alliance (JLA) is a non-profit making initiative established in 2004. It brings patients, carers and clinicians together in Priority Setting Partnerships (PSPs) to identify and prioritise the Top 10 unanswered questions or evidence uncertainties that they agree are the most important.

The aim of this is to make sure that health research funders are aware of the issues that matter most to the people who need to use the research in their everyday lives.
