The BEE Report

The BEE Report – Briefing Equity Evidence is a report issued by the Centre for Health Equity Training, Research and Evaluation(CHETRE) that reviews new evidence on equity issues and addresses applications into policy and action.

Current Issue

Tackling gambling harm to improve health equity in New South Wales

Issue 2021-no.5 | Andrew Reid

Gambling-related harm is unfairly distributed among economically and socially disadvantaged groups. A public health approach is more effective than a responsible gambling approach.

Previous Issues

Equitable access for COVID-19 vaccines for refugees in Australia

Issue 2021-no.4 | Dr. Abela Mahimbo

As the COVID-19 vaccines are being rolled out, tailored vaccine acceptance strategies that meet refugees’ needs are crucial to ensure they are not further disadvantaged.

Behaviour change and its per/inverse relationship with health equity

Issue 2021-no.3 | Centre for Health Equity Training, Research and Evaluation (CHETRE)

Evidence that behaviour change interventions worsen inequities, and adversely impact the most disadvantaged, is compelling. ‘Simple’ systems change, however, is insufficient. Designing complex and contextualised intervention packages is necessary. However, evidence indicates that rhetoric and learned routines stand in the way of effective action.

Indigenous eye health inequity

Issue 2021-no.2 | Ary Yashadhana

Vision impairment and blindness are three times higher among Indigenous compared to non-Indigenous Australians, with 90% of conditions being preventable or treatable. Recognising health systems have a ‘culture’ of their own, assists in identifying the changes needed to cater to difference in the provision of Indigenous eye care.

Urban aesthetics and equitable health impact

Issue 2021-no.1 | Evelyne de Leeuw

Aesthetics are important and impact on spatial equity. Not all aesthetic qualities, however, are strongly connected to health and quality of life differentials. Only a few out of a long list are.
