In the area of infectious disease, our researchers are passionate about improving access to health services. We bring to this specific expertise in health inequalities, social determinants of health, with a focus on priority communities such as Indigenous peoples, and culturally and linguistically diverse populations. Our work spans research on program design, implementation and evaluation of health services and policy to optimise health protection. For example, our work in drug-resistant infections aims to identify and prioritise future directions for antimicrobial stewardship; and in the study of One Health we aim to improve global health security by exploring and understanding the driving factors of infectious disease transfer from animals to humans.
