Population, Policy and Practice


We are a multi-disciplinary group of researchers with an international reputation for population-level and clinical research that influences public health policy and practice.

Our aim is to promote the health of children and young people and the adults they will become through conducting research:

  • across the life course
  • on common, chronic and complex conditions, in addition to rare disorders
  • on defining and measuring what matters for children, young people and their families
  • recognising the wider contexts of children's lives

RESEARCH SPOTLIGHT

Comparing Socio-economic Inequalities in Children's Health in UK and Australia

Anna Pearce is currently working on an MRC fellowship project, comparing socio-economic inequalities in children's health in the UK and Australia and considering how national policy might reduce them.

Areas of health and wellbeing that Anna is looking at include thinness, self regulation, and immunisation. She is currently based in the Discipline of Public Health at the University of Adelaide, working alongside Professor John Lynch, analysing Australian data.
