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 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.
Through our advocacy and extensive partnerships with consumers, communities, governments, health and social care services, our research is delivering innovative policy, community and health systems solutions that improve the current, future and intergenerational health of families, communities and societies.
We pride ourselves on the nexus of our teaching and research. We do this in partnership with communities, centres and institutes, health services and people with lived experience and expertise.
Our research and impact promotes equity, strengthens health systems and improves access to high quality care for all people in Australia and worldwide.
Our Health 25 Strategy aims to improve the quality of life for all by tackling the complex and important health challenges of our times.
