About Us

The Centre for Primary Health Care and Equity is committed to intervention research that impacts on policy and practice. The long term vision of the centre is to improve the community's health and wellbeing through a focus on improved primary health care services and development of policies and strategies that address health inequalities.

CPHCE acknowledges the country as belonging to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples of Australia. 


CPHCE respects the traditional custodians of this land, of elders past and present, on which all our centres base. We bring together groups of researchers working in different locations.

  • At Randwick, core CPHCE and South Eastern Sydney Research Collaboration Hub (SEaRCH) staff, and researchers also associated with the School of Public Health and Community Medicine
  • At Liverpool, the Centre for Health Equity Training Research and Evaluation (CHETRE)
  • At Carramar, the Primary and Integrated Care Unit (PaICU)
  • At Camperdown, the Health Equity Research and Development Unit  (HERDU)
