The research programme (April 2011-March 2019) addresses a number of key policy-relevant themes, including alcohol abuse and how it may be tackled at individual and population levels; and mental health and wellbeing, and how it may be promoted through living and working conditions. They also address the clustering of risk factors (such as smoking, poor diet, alcohol misuse, and lack of physical activity), and links to social disadvantage. Health inequalities remains a cross-cutting theme, and a further project investigated methods for examining health inequalities within the context of a cost-effectiveness analysis.
