The Public Health Research Group creates a network to promote public health research activities with local and international institutes. By supporting development of new research and translation of research into policy and practice, we aim to improve the health and well-being of our population and improve the health of vulnerable groups.
Our members are from different disciplines of the University including health sciences, social sciences, and behavioural economics. They are actively engaged in research responding to the health and social needs of the local communities and global public health challenges.
The Public Health Research Group uses a multidisciplinary approach to respond to public health issues and network with the community. The members have different educations and backgrounds with experience in a variety of research methods from epidemiology, medical sociology, statistics and qualitative approach as well as a combination of these.
