Who we are
Health Justice Australia is the national centre of excellence for health justice partnership, supporting collaborations between services to achieve better health and justice outcomes for vulnerable communities.
What we do
Our work builds expertise, identifies system barriers, creates opportunities for systems change, and enables health justice partnerships to expand and increase their impact.
We’re connecting the evidence, expertise and experiences of a diverse range of professionals, researchers and communities to explore partnership to address inequities in health and justice.
We work to build the confidence, skills and readiness of health and justice practitioners, advocates and leaders to work together towards better outcomes for their patients and clients.
We’re working towards lasting systems change through strategic advocacy toward reforms in policy settings, service design and funding.
Building effective health justice partnerships (HJPs) requires partners to pay attention to how they work together, not just what they do. Here’s a guide to help you set up processes for reviewing your partnership.
