It is well documented that individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families experience health inequities across the life-course. This research cluster aims to illuminate socio-political and structural factors that contribute to inequities. This research will help to inform ethical and equitable policies and practices that support health and well-being across the life-course.
