The CRE-DH is characterised by a diversity of innovative research related to disability and society. This includes but is not restricted to disability and social and economic circumstance, gender, health and wellbeing, inequities over time, the designed environment, discrimination and social exclusion, public policy and health economics.
We have four thematic programs of work that drive the Centre's research:
Seeking to understand the socio-economic and health inequities between people with and without disabilities in Australia.
More about Mapping Inequities
Identifying the social, economic and environmental factors that contribute to the health of people with disabilities.
More about Social Determinants
Assessing the health impacts of a range of interventions that aim to improve the social determinants of health of people with disabilities.
