About Home2Health Team, School of Population and Global Health, UWA
The Home2Health research team is based within the School of Population and Global Health at the University of Western Australia. Our underlying research ethos is to undertake research that is useful and relevant to the real world to reduce health inequalities.
We are involved in a growing program of research relating to family and domestic violence (FDV) and health justice as well as homelessness. We undertake evaluation of programs and evidence-informed advocacy policy work in these areas through the not-for-profit and government sectors in Western Australia, nationally and internationally to champion improved processes and positive outcomes for the most vulnerable in our communities. We work closely with these organisations and services at the coalface and, critically, with those with lived experience.
There are enormous life expectancy and health gaps for people experiencing these issues, but these can be prevented. This lies at the heart of our team’s existence and its research.
