School of Population Health

Our research

The primary aim of research at the School of Population Health is to find new ways to improve the health and well being of all New Zealanders.

The School of Population Health (SoPH) is organised into discipline-specific sections.  It also hosts a number of multi-disciplinary research units, centres or institutes.

Our researchers tackle a variety of complex public health and health care-related issues that often require multi-disciplinary and/or multi-methodological approaches to achieve outcomes that benefit individuals as well as whole populations.

Given the universal issues addressed in the study of population health, there is also a strong international flavour to much of the research conducted at the school, with a particular interest in health in the Pacific.
