Health has improved for many but not for all. The extent of these health differences is growing, between and within countries. Meanwhile, humans are disrupting the Earth system. This too poses serious risks to health, risks that impinge unequally between regions and populations. The proposal addresses the interface between climate change and health inequity. The aim is to understand the inter-relationship between Australian economic, social, health and environmental policy, the food system, the urban living environment, health equity and climate change. The research will inform the alignment of policy agendas, leading towards greater national and global health equity and the development of societies that live within environmental limits.
