The objective of the project is to generate new tools and evidence to promote PHIs that are cost-effective, that generate both health and non-health benefits, and that reduce inequalities. Specifically, we will: I) further develop newly proposed methods for inclusive evaluation of PHIs, i.e. economic evaluation that incorporates non-health benefits and distributional concerns; II) evaluate three clusters of PHIs promoting a) walking and cycling, b) lifestyle services for overweight or obese children, adolescents, and adults, and c) physical activity among socioeconomically disadvantaged women using the new methods; and III) identify and assess new ways to bridge the evaluation and implementation of PHIs.

We will employ both quantitative and qualitative methods, including method development (subproject I), cost-effectiveness analysis (subproject II), and comparative policy analysis and interviews (subproject III). We will utilise data from multiple sources, including health surveys and the national burden of disease project.
