What we do

Health, legal and other systems are not well equipped to deal with complex and intersecting needs. We’re working to change how systems respond to complexity through evidence-based innovation.


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 conduct original research, we collaborate on interdisciplinary research partnerships, and we develop and translate resources to bring knowledge to practitioners, researchers, policy-makers and funders.

Working in partnership takes investment, not just in dollars but in relationships, skills, knowledge, culture and process. HJA aims to be a centre of excellence for health justice partnership across the country.

Our team provides advice, resources and learning opportunities 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.

Strategic advocacy

We’re working towards lasting systems change through strategic advocacy toward reforms in policy settings, service design and funding.

We identify and tackle the structural barriers in policy, funding, and service system design that add to the complexity of issues people face and ultimately undermine the effectiveness of service responses.
