About HUE

Healthy Urban Environments Collaboratory of Maridulu Budyari Gumal (SPHERE) exists to improve the health of Australians living in urban environments. We achieve this by facilitating partnerships between those who shape and have an impact on cities. These partnerships undertake research and activities to build our understanding of how urban environments can deliver better, more equitable health outcomes. We’ll use this understanding to inform government policy and practice in the planning and development of urban areas.
