The CRE-DH has a strong focus on applying a health equity lens to studying the social determinants of health of persons with disabilities. The CRE-DH involves researchers from across Australia and internationally with expertise in public health, epidemiology, health economics, health and social policy, psychology, and public administration. At the University of Sydney, the CRE-DH is led by Professor Gwynnyth Llewellyn (Professor of Family and Disability Studies) at the University of Sydney.
