MIHE is a research institute at McMaster University that encourages new inter-disciplinary understandings of the social, economic, cultural, political and bio-physical forces that lead to health inequities.
Our goal is to investigate health inequities, and use research to achieve health equity, take leadership in encouraging evidence-based action on health inequities. MIHE develops a body of expertise in evidence focusing on reducing health inequity interventions, promoting health equity, and stimulate and support knowledge mobilization, student engagement and collaborative partnerships from local to global contexts.
ARMS takes a unique interdisciplinary approach to lead the way for advanced research on mental health from a social science perspective.
