Health Rights, Disasters and Development: Towards 2030
Supervisors: Prof Anthony Zwi, Prof Lisa Maher and Dr Krishna K. Shrestha

Health, rights, disasters and development are all pressing issues at the current time - both in Australia, in the Asia-Pacific and further afield. The recent agreement on the Sustainable Development Goals has set an ambitious agenda for global development. Ambitious approaches to developing innovative approaches to eradicating poverty, promoting gender equity, and achieving universal access to health are important but elusive, especially in marginalised populations. This project will bring together cross-disciplinary thinking to propose and carefully evaluate innovations, policy solutions, and the engagement of affected communities. A key issue will be to "leave no one behind”.
