SACHRU has transitioned into Southgate Solutions.
Southgate Solutions continues SACHRU’S tradition of high-quality research, evaluation and training relevant to community-based services, primary health care health promotion, community development and local government.
This is the archived site of The South Australian Community Health Research Unit (SACHRU). SACHRU was part of the Southgate Institute for Health, Society and Equity, enhancing health, wellbeing and equitable outcomes in South Australia by contributing to improving the quality of primary health care, health promotion and population health initiatives through research, evaluation and building the capacity of the workforce.
SACHRU provided support to a range of groups including community health services, government departments administering grants programs, community organisations, and others conducting community and primary health care projects, such as hospitals, and non-government organisations.
Core funding was provided by the SA Department of Health and Ageing, and with funds from other sources for projects, consultancies, conferences and workshops. SACHRU was administered through the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences, Flinders University.
