About us

HEADS is the result of a several year multidisciplinary reflexion aiming to build a new form of genuine interdisciplinary research on Society and Health in Bordeaux. This emerging programme is now implemented by our best expertise in public health, humanities, and social sciences.

The Excellence Initiative of the University of Bordeaux (IdEx Bordeaux) includes a program called HEADS (HEAlth Determinants in Societies), that is to allow researchers in Bordeaux to systematically revisit and update questions of societal determinants of health, chiefly by combining viewpoints from major academic domains such as communication, economics, epidemiology, law, medicine, philosophy, political and social sciences, and public health.
