Our Research

We use diverse quantitative and qualitative social research methods.

All our research is informed by a social model of health, with a specific focus on understanding and addressing gender-based risks and the social, economic, cultural and political contexts of people’s lives.

Our areas of research include

  • psychosocial aspects of ageing
  • reproductive health
  • pregnancy and childbearing
  • early childhood health and development
  • chronic illness

Our research informs government policy, health services, and practice guidelines.
