We use epidemiological methods to understand the health of populations and the quality, efficiency and equity of healthcare. We work in partnership with policy agencies, health services, communities and regulators to generate evidence to inform and evaluate health system responses to public health problems, with the goal of improving the health of populations.

Our goals

We work closely with policy, practice and community stakeholders to design and implement epidemiological studies to inform and evaluate public health policy and practice across a diverse range of health and health system areas, including child population health, maternal health, medicine use, safety and effectiveness of healthcare, infectious diseases surveillance and control, immunisation, environmental epidemiology, cancer epidemiology and health services use.
