The National Centre for Farmer Health focuses on studying and preventing risks that can affect the health, wellbeing, and safety of farmers, agricultural workers, and farming families. Our goal is to use research to make a positive impact and improve the lives of those in the farming industry.

We collect and interpret evidence to better understand the challenges faced by farmers and their families. Then, we use this knowledge to create programs and projects that directly benefit farmers and address their needs.

To ensure that our research is effective and relevant, we collaborate with other academic institutions, healthcare providers, agricultural organisations, and farming communities. By working together, we can maximise the impact of our research and develop initiatives that are suitable for the farming community.
