Prevention and Health promotion

​​​​

Main focus areas are to identify which models that are effective within individualised and population based strategies to prevent chronic diseases and premature death.

Several projects are ongoing:

  • Inter99 – one of the world's largest individualised intervention against unhealthy lifestyle to prevent chronic diseases

  • Assessment of the effect of implementation of food fortification programmes (iodine and vitamin D)

  • Exploring the impact of environmental factors in the neighbourhood on the health behaviour of citizens (e.g. food-environment and eating behaviour, public transport and commuting physical activity, recreational area and sedentarism) based on use of the Geographic Information System (GIS)

  • Investigating how structural changes in neighbourhoods affect changes in behaviour combined with individualised counselling and information

  • Continuous health profiles of the capital region creates a natural data material for measuring the effect of various changes in health behaviour.
