Australians generally enjoy good health. However, good health is not shared equally. There are significant differences in rates of death and disease, life expectancy, self-perceived health, health behaviours, health risk factors and health service utilization. These ‘health inequities’ are associated with differences in education, occupation, income, employment status, rurality, Aboriginality and gender. They are also associated with ethnicity, culture, migration history and experiences of racism.
Health inequity is the unjust differences in health that are preventable and unnecessary. Health inequities are systemic differences in health that could be avoided. Working on the systems that create health inequity is the core business of World Wellness Group.
Not everyone benefits from the same supports.
This is equal treatment.
Everyone gets the support they need.
Cultural and Language, social determinants are addressed thus producing equity.
The systemic barriers have been removed.
All can access the health system without the need for tailored support because the cause(s) of the inequity was addressed.
We have the expertise, vision and understanding, just not the resources. However, this has not stopped us in the past from setting up World Wellness Group and we will continue to work for a Knowledge Hub.
If you would like to join us on this next journey to set up a multicultural health knowledge hub, please get in touch today.
Join our dynamic, multicultural and highly skilled team. We are actively recruiting additional health practitioners due to the increasing demand for our services.

World Wellness Group acknowledges that the space we occupy and the place we conduct our work, has and always will be the traditional lands of the Turrbul and Yuggera people.
We understand that the connection between this land and its indigenous people has a special and spiritual significance that benefits social and emotional wellbeing. We pay our respect to the elders past, present and future of this ancient land and recognise that delivering equitable healthcare requires that we understand, appreciate and reflect our respect for both Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. We commit to growing and nurturing our relationship with Indigenous Australians, to assuring their rightful place in the journey that is better health outcomes for Australia and to exploring the opportunity for partnerships and collaboration to benefit all.
