Centre for Research Excellence in the Social Determinants of Health Equity
Welcome to the Centre for Research Excellence in the Social Determinants of Health Equity. Our aim is to advance understanding of how government policy can work more effectively to address the social determinants of health, so as to improve health and promote the fair distribution of health in society.
Our research focuses on a wide range of policy sectors that affect the social determinants of health including social security, health systems, trade, urban land-use, digital technologies and Indigenous health.
Our National Health and Medical Research Council-funded Centre is a joint collaboration between researchers at Flinders University, Australian National University, University of Sydney, University of Ottawa and the Lowijta Institute. It was launched by former Prime Minister the Hon. Julia Gillard on 24 April 2015.
