ANU has an international reputation for research and education relevant to the health and well-being of the population of Australia, as well as that of the developing world.

The ANU College of Health and Medicine comprises the Research School of Psychology, the ANU Medical School, the John Curtin School of Medical Research and the Research School of Population Health. These schools work together to deliver world-class research and education across the spectrum of medicine and health-related fields, working in partnership with the health sector at local, national and international levels. 

Researchers at the National Centre for Epidemiology and Population Health (NCEPH) within the Research School of Population Health (RSPH) conduct innovative and multidisciplinary large-scale research in areas across the social and cultural determinants of health and wellbeing.
