Health Geography includes themes such as health inequalities and how social and physical environments shape human health. Deprivation is defined as a lack of the types of diet, clothing, housing and environmental, educational, working and social conditions, activities and facilities which are customary. This research has led to the development of online tools such as the New Zealand Index of Multiple Deprivation (IMD), the Older Person’s Index of Multiple Deprivation (OPIMD) and the Auckland Regional Vascular Atlas (ARVA).
