Brief description Children who live in more deprived family circumstances are more likely to experience poorer health including asthma, obesity, and difficulties in language, learning and behaviour. This research uses large scale population surveys of Australian children to investigate how difficulties such as experiencing poverty may affect childrenÍs health. This research also investigates how families and communities experience barriers to receiving health services and how this affects childrenÍs health.
