We develop research to support collaborative practice and evidence-based policy solutions to critical problems like,
- Why do human services leave gaps through which vulnerable members of our communities fall?
- How do we fill those gaps to ensure that people experiencing disadvantage receive the support they need, when they need it?
Our research collaboration
Health Justice Australia has developed a research collaboration and seeks funding for our multi-year, multi-disciplinary research agenda that connects the health and justice needs in our communities with effective, integrated services. This ground-breaking evidence base will encompass:
- the social determinants of health
- access to justice
- evaluation of integrated service models
- systems capability (of the health and legal systems)
- the role and voice of communities using these services.
Health Justice Australia works closely with a range of researchers, some with a standing interest in HJPs and some who bring fresh perspectives to this growing area of practice. Our research collaboration includes: Law and Justice Foundation of NSW; NHMRC Centre for Research Excellence (CRE) in the Social Determinants of Health Equity; the George Institute for Global Health; and researchers from La Trobe University and the Australian National University.
If you’re a researcher interested in multidisciplinary approaches to improving health, justice and wellbeing, we want to hear from you.
