As the national centre for health justice partnerships, we help achieve better health and justice outcomes for vulnerable communities.

In Australia many people on low incomes have three or more legal problems a year. Evidence shows they are more likely to talk about these with a trusted health professional than a lawyer. And those legal problems can often contribute to ‒ or even cause ‒ their health problems.

That’s why we're working with lawyers and health professionals to create health justice partnerships (HJPs) that facilitate better health and justice outcomes for everyone. Through research, resources and advocacy, Health Justice Australia is working to realise the benefits of local HJPs on a national scale.
