Centre for Health and Society
The Centre for Health and Society looks across society at broad-ranging questions, examining how technology, commerce, ethics, economics and politics influence health.
The Centre for Health and Society wants to understand the ways that society shapes individual and population health. These are called the social and structural determinants of health. How healthy you are is determined by factors well beyond lifestyle choices, clinical care, or genetics. Factors such as where you live, how much money you earn, or what work you do, are just as important. The Centre examines the many ways that these and other social and economic factors influence health.
The Centre acts as a hub, connecting academics, health practitioners, and health advocates to explore how people’s health and wellbeing can be improved. It includes leading academics who combine internationally leading research with a wealth of experience working with organisations involved in policy-development, professional regulation, and health promotion. The Centre's members work with colleagues from across disciplines to develop innovative approaches to healthcare delivery, policy and practice that better support health and wellbeing in the real world.
