Funding for programs targeting social inequity

Posted 20 April 2015

VicHealth's Social Innovation for Health Equity project is offering seed funding of up to $135,000 for programs that target the common drivers of health inequitiy.

According to VidHealth: "Some of the most impactful and sustainable improvements in health equity can result from action at the socioeconomic, political and cultural level of the framework. This typically requires change well outside the health service or public health sector."

Applications close on 7 May and successful programs will be notified on 27 May.
