About us

The Menzies Centre for Health Policy is a collaborative centre between The Australian National University and The University of Sydney. Founded in 2006, from the Sir Robert Menzies Memorial Foundation, the Centre’s vision is that Australians and neighbouring regions will be protected by public policies and systems that are consistent with their values and priorities and able to preserve health and deliver safe, high quality health care that is sustainable in the long term.

  • The Menzies Centre for Health Policy at ANU seeks to break down barriers between researchers, policy-makers and practitioners through pro-active partnerships in collaborative knowledge production, translation, and capacity development.
  • As a network of academics working closely with policymakers and practitioners, the Centre is a dynamic entity, aiming to shape national, regional and global health policy actions and respond to emerging health needs.
  • With a focus on evidence for action, the Centre will assist in the ongoing creation, collation and synthesis of an evidence base of what, how and why policy actions work to improve population health and health equity.
