Opening in 2003, our centre has grown to include six research units.
The teams working in each unit research a broad range of population-based health initiatives.
We work across chronic and infectious diseases to create compelling evidence to influence policies and practices in public health.
Deakin Health Economics Unit
This research informs the efficient allocation of health resources.
Our expertise is in obesity and diabetes, mental health, chronic disease management, disability, maternal and child health, cardiovascular disease, cancer, and oral health.
Health Systems Improvement Unit
Here, we're focusing on health inequities across acute and chronic conditions with the goal of sustainable solutions for local issues.
Work Health and Wellbeing Unit
This research is advancing the scientific and public understanding of work as a social determinant of health. It also helps shape policy and practice to better protect people from the harmful effects of work.
Global Obesity Centre
We create, share and distribute knowledge in partnership with the community to promote obesity prevention and other non-communicable disease (NCD) prevention.
Disability and Inclusion Unit
Our research projects are aimed at providing innovative evidence-based solutions to issues affecting people with disability and their families.
We foster wide collaborations driving improvements in social inclusion, disability policy, equity and service delivery.
