Prof. Fran Baum

Professor Fran Baum is the Head of the Department of Public Health at Flinders University, Adelaide, and a leading international expert on the social and economic determinants of health.

She serves on the World Health Organisation's Commission on Social Determinants of Health, which is currently gathering evidence from around the world about the underlying causes of disease and illness - evidence which strengthens the very premise of Communities in Control: that participation and a feeling of control over your life are absolutely vital to good health.
