Centre of Research Excellence in Healthy Housing
Grant number: 1196456 | Funding period: 2020 - 2025
Australian is one of a few high income countries that does not have a healthy housing policy. As a consequence we fail to leverage the enormous potential for housing and housing focussed interventions to have a positive impact on population health in Australia. Our Centre for Research Excellence will provide Australian specific evidence, work with key stakeholders to make change and build capacity in the overlapping domains of housing and health.
