Two SPHSU projects have gained awards in the first ever round of funding by the UK Prevention Research Partnership (UKPRP). UKPRP is investing £25 million into understanding and influencing the social economic and environmental factors that affect our health. The two successful projects received UKPRP Network Awards.
- Ruth Dundas leads the MatCH-Net: Maternal and Child Health Network. This project will harness cross-country administrative data to evaluate national policy impacts on maternal, infant and child health and health inequalities.
- Professor Laurence Moore leads PHASE: The Population Health Agent-based Simulation Network. This network will focus on the application and use of agent-based models among researchers and decision makers in order to develop insights into the interdependent and interacting processes that result in non-communicable diseases and health inequalities.
