Health care delivery

The health of all Australians is improved through a health care system with highly trained and motivated health workers, a well-maintained infrastructure, and a reliable supply and continued improvement of medicines and technologies. 

Such a system can only work when research plays a significant role, is valued and is a key activity at all levels, informing the development and implementation of policy and the organisation and delivery of care.

In this research theme, our work is influencing the delivery of health care across Australia and the world, and includes but is not limited to the following research areas:

  • Health care delivery and education
  • Health promotion
  • International health and health care systems
  • Primary health care services
  • Rural and indigenous health and health care
  • Telehealth and online medicine
  • Global burden of disease
  • Aged care
  • Emergency medicine and intensive care
  • Pain and pain therapies
  • Rehabilitation and therapy
  • Anti-microbial stewardship
  • Control and elimination of malaria
  • HIV prevention (pre-exposure prophylaxis)
