ARIF was a specialist unit based at the University of Birmingham whose role was to improve the incorporation of research findings into population level health care decisions in the NHS in the West Midlands. The ARIF unit ceased to exist in 2011. Associated ARIF databases continue to be updated until June 2018 and are no longer being updated.
