Focused on health and social well-being

The Faculty of Health Professions has an academic and research vision that is focused on global health, and the health and social well-being of individuals and their communities.

We adopt the World Health Organization (WHO) position that "Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity". - Constitution of the WHO, 1948

Health and social well-being are local and global issues that concern our researchers across the biological structures of function and impairment to the macro structures of human engagement and resilience.

We have research strengths in quantitative methodologies and expertise in qualitative and applied research methodologies - especially community-based research and community engaged research.
