Global and Women's Health
From Australia to Vietnam, India to the Solomon Islands, our research takes us throughout the Indo-Pacific region. Capitalising on the expertise in our team and working with project partners, we generate evidence to explain health inequalities in their local and global contexts; translate research to promote health and improve health services; and build capacity through supervision and mentorship.
We're part of the School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine.
We are a multi-disciplinary group with expertise in biostatistics, epidemiology, health promotion, medicine, nursing, and psychology. Through our global health research, we seek to promote health for all and to reduce health inequalities.
