The Mary MacKillop Institute for Health Research aims to identify critical gaps within community and healthcare services, with an explicit goal to improve health outcomes (and a focus on vulnerable groups) via innovative individual, community and health service-focused programs.

Collaborating on projects nationally and internationally, The MacKillop invests in people and communities across Australia and beyond its borders.

Through research that responds to real needs, researchers are working to improve the well-being of people locally and globally so that they can lead full, healthy lives.
