4.4 Health

The CRCSI Health Program brings together expertise in spatial and health sciences to form collaborative partnerships with research institutions, government agencies, health service providers and clinicians, the private sector and the community. We exist to improve efficiency of health resource management and increase knowledge of disease cause through spatial technology. We can assist your organisation through a number of services and opportunities.

  • Research Partnerships
  • Commissioned Research
  • Consultation and Project Management

To explore how we can work together to apply spatial technologies please contact Paula Fievez.

Spatial Health answers the key question 'Does my location affect my health', we help to map disease, find causes (find what it is related to) and improve service delivery.

Spatial Information has long been used in the Health sector to pinpoint areas of risk for specific diseases. This information helps identify contributing factors to the disease and populations at risk.

The challenge today is to ensure that the significant progress in spatial information and technologies is used to its full potential.

All stages of new policy development and decision-making require timely access to information. Spatial information allows diverse risk factors, such as smoking, physical activity and the wider environment, to be considered in a common framework.
