The global health landscape is changing rapidly as a consequence of a myriad of factors: population growth, ageing, lifestyle changes and new pandemics of chronic disease and injury. This places unprecedented demands on already overstretched healthcare resources in both high- and low-income.
Our work focuses on global health challenges with the greatest loss of productive and enjoyable life, and particularly in those greatest affected who reside in resource-poor settings.
You don't find us working in conventional laboratories with rats and microscopes, but instead with people in communities, clinics and hospitals, and involving multiple stakeholders covering practitioners, providers, governments and other organisations engaged in delivering healthcare. We conduct large-scale randomised trials, epidemiological studies, health services evaluations, and innovative programs involving novel systems for capturing data and decision-making.
