The Health Equity and Governance Group (HEGG) was established at RegNet in 2014. The aim of HEGG’s research is to understand the regulatory instruments and institutions in order to inform public policy in ways that promotes a fairer, more sustainable and healthier society within Australia, the Asia Pacific region and globally. To achieve this aim the Group pursues policy-relevant research on the economic, social and environmental determinants of health.
The Group comprises a diverse disciplinary mix, including researchers working in epidemiology, sociology, environmental science, political science, nutrition, psychology and economics.
