Research for impact

The Centre for Primary Health Care and Equity (CPHCE) focuses on primary health care and health equity related research, evaluation and development. Our centre is committed to intervention research that impacts policy and practice. Our long-term vision is to improve community health and wellbeing.

We bring research groups together within the School of Population Health at UNSW Sydney. We contribute important primary health care and equity research locally, nationally and internationally. 


CPHCE respects the traditional custodians of this land, of elders past and present, on which all our centres are based. We bring together groups of researchers working across these locations:

  • Randwick, where our core CPHCE staff are based, as well as researchers within UNSW Sydney School of Population Health
  • Liverpool, where the Centre for Health Equity Training Research and Evaluation (CHETRE) is based
  • Camperdown, with the Health Equity Research and Development Unit (HERDU).
