The National Centre for Farmer Health (NCFH) is a partnership between Western District Health Service and Deakin University and is based in Hamilton, Western Victoria. Established in 2008, by the Victorian Government and the Helen and Geoff Handbury Trust, the Centre encompasses university research, service delivery and education that provides leadership in improving the health, wellbeing and safety of farm men and women, their families and rural communities across Australia and globally.
Focussing on prevention and early identification of risk factors associated with farming populations, the NCFH develops timely, appropriate, effective and popular interventions. Often working in partnership with industry, rural organisations and academia.
The NCFH team includes professionals from the health, agricultural, social sciences and information technology disciplines who have a proven capacity to deliver in the areas of education, training, applied research and community engagement.
