The Health Equity Research and Development Unit (HERDU) was established in 2013 as a Sydney Local Health District Service in partnership with the Centre for Primary Health Care and Equity (CPHCE).
HERDU works collaboratively with health services, organisations and communities to conduct high quality research to identify and explain causes of health inequities, to develop evidence of effective actions to prevent, reduce or eliminate inequities in health, and to evaluate the impact of implementation.
