Southgate Institute for Health, Society and Equity
The Health Equity Hub is an initiative of the Southgate Institute for Health, Society and Equity. It brings together policy briefs and summaries of key findings from our research to inform practice and policy in Australia and internationally.
The Southgate Institute undertakes research focused on what can be done about the underlying factors that determine the distribution of health and wellbeing outcomes. We produce knowledge on why health inequities exist, what can be done about them and how population health overall can be improved.
We will continue to develop and add to the Health Equity Hub with more policy-relevant research outputs, so bookmark this page and visit us again soon.
