Homeless Healthcare's focus on health issues has seen a need to develop research partnerships focusing on social determinants to reach a common goal for people experiencing homelessness - a healthy person living in permanent stable housing.
Research in this space makes a big difference.
"It doesn't matter what metric you want to look at, all of the indicators suggest that Street Health service is making an important difference; to public health, the state purse and people on the street all stand to win."
Associate Professor Lisa Wood, UWA.

The homelessness sector is often dealing with the repercussions of health service inaccessibility for people who are homeless, and many of our clients have multiple issues...this collaboration allows us to take a more intentional case management approach to identifying health issues contributing to the client's homelessness, which is critical if we are to stop the revolving door.
