Our research is all about seeing the bigger picture in health.

We’re here to understand what drives preventable disease and the interventions needed to take action and make change. It’s at the heart of what we do, and for more than 30 years we've been investing in cutting-edge research and leading scientists, experts and thinkers to help.  

We're excited to announce VicHealth's 3 new Harmful Industries Fellows. Harmful industries are brands, companies or organisations who profit from products that are harmful to health and wellbeing including alcohol, gambling, unhealthy food and sugary drinks. Together, the fellows will gather insights on harmful industry activity in Australia, focusing on the alcohol, gambling, unhealthy food and sugary drinks industries. All to bring about positive, healthy change for the people of Victoria.   

We’re committed to informing and shaping solutions through bold and innovative research. That’s why we’re making this initial investment of $1.1 million over the next 3 years to our fellowship program.  

This is a unique opportunity for early-career researchers to be part of VicHealth’s work and relevant communities. Successful fellows will join the VicHealth team as well as our stakeholder networks. All to support the health and wellbeing of the Victorian community.
