The Centre for Research on Inner City Health (CRICH) is dedicated to reducing health inequities through innovative research that supports social change.

We conduct research to better understand the linkages between poverty, social exclusion and poor health. And we work in partnership with community agencies and decision-makers to evaluate population health interventions to improve health outcomes for inner city populations.

Projects that provide equity data, analyses and knowledge to health care system decision-makers.

Our studies are drawing connections between homelessness and serious health problems, including early death.

We are working to improve the health and well-being of urban Aboriginal individuals, families, communities and Nations.

We are investigating and developing new ways for governments to work together to address health inequities.

Our studies focus on informing and evaluating targeted mental health interventions that are most likely to meet the needs of vulnerable groups.

We measure whether health care is delivered equitably or not, and evaluate how well health care services work for inner city populations.
