"The HRCS is a system for classifying and analysing biomedical and health research funding. Its role is to faciliate research management by answering strategic questions about investment. (...) The Health Categories dimension of the HRCS captures the area of health or disease being studied. There are 21 separate categories which encompass all diseases, conditions and areas of health. (...) Research Activity Codes classify types of research activity. This dimension of the HRCS has 48 codes divided into eight overarching code groups which encompass all aspects of health related research activity ranging from basic to applied research."
