    Understanding risk behaviours through innovative research

    Promoting improved health and wellbeing by reducing harms related to risky behaviours.

Focuses on the promotion of improved health and wellbeing by reducing harms related to risky behaviours.

Alcohol consumption among young people is a major focus of this program, as are injecting drug use, methamphetamine use, and sexual and reproductive health.

Through the Behaviours and Health Risks program Burnet is committing to making a major contribution:

  • To promote improved health and wellbeing by reducing harms related to alcohol and other drugs and sexual and mental health
  • To reducing risky behaviours related to alcohol consumption, with a particular focus on young people
  • To reducing risky behaviours related to drug use, with a focus on injecting drug use and methamphetamine use
  • To reducing risky behaviours related to sexual and reproductive health, with a focus on young people and key populations
  • To reducing risky behaviours related to emerging behavioural issues arising from work in other programs
  • To increase the capacity of health professionals, researchers, policy makers and the general community through education and training to achieve a reduction in harms related to alcohol and drugs in Australia and globally.
