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.
