Spanning a broad range of global and local health priorities, our research improves the health and wellbeing of people across the life course and intergenerationally. We focus on creating a world where everyone can have a healthy start to life, with optimal growth and development, enabling people to live and age well.

Our goals

Our equity-oriented approach recognises  that health and wellbeing are interconnected  with identity, opportunity and the social circumstances in which we live, grow, work and age.

Our team brings together diverse expertise, with researchers from specialist areas including epidemiology, advocacy, consumer and community-led approaches, health systems and implementation science.
