Lifelong health and wellbeing

In this strand, we aim to explore how different factors can impact on people’s lives and health in Scotland: from where people grow up, to the activities they engage in as young people, and how and where they commute.

Lead: Professor Chris Dibben, University of Edinburgh

Our research in this strategic impact programme will provide evidence in support of Scotland’s Fairer, healthier Scotland strategic framework for action, and will provide information in line with the needs of Scotland’s new public health landscape. The outcomes of this research will provide evidence to support plans and strategies to promote healthy and active life for individuals and communities.
