Who we are
The Centre for Primary Health Care and Equity (CPHCE) is a university research centre located within the Faculty of Medicine, University of NSW. We are closely associated with the School of Public Health and Community Medicine at the University of New South Wales, and have long term partnerships with health services, particularly in south western, south eastern and central Sydney.
What we do
We conduct research, evaluation and development that strengthen primary health care and address health inequities, with the aim of contributing to better, fairer health in the community. We address current issues in policy and practice, and work with health and related services to implement our findings. Our work is rigorous, collaborative and is based on more than fifteen years’ experience as a research group.
CPHCE is proud to announce that our Executive Director Professor Mark Harris has been elected as a fellow to the Australian Academy of Health and Medical Sciences. He was awarded the fellowship at the Inaugural Annual General Meeting and Scientific Meeting of the Academy held in Canberra on October 6th 2015.
A redesigned and updated brochure of CPHCE is now available. It provides a summary of who we are and the expertise we offer to other groups and organisations.
We are delighted to announce that Professor Evelyne de Leeuw officially started as director of the Centre for Health Equity Training Research and Evaluation (CHETRE) on October 1st 2015. She succeeds Acting Director Karen Edwards, who is moving on with her consultancy work. Evelyne brings with her decades of research in Healthy Cities and local government policy processes and the capacity to provide strategic advice on policies and governance arrangements for healthy urban planning.
