News Content

The NIHR Public Health Research (PHR) Programme is supporting ‘National Walking Month’ (Walk to Work Week -13-17 May and Walk to School Week - 20-24 May). The NIHR PHR Programme, evaluates public health interventions to improve the health of public and has a number of projects currently in progress evaluating such interventions and schemes. The Programme is currently interested in receiving outline applications to the researcher-led work stream to meet recommendations in research identified in the recent NICE guidance on Walking and Cycling; the evaluation of health-related outcomes resulting from changes to local transport, including initiatives funded through the Local Sustainable Transport Fund and interventions to encourage walking or cycling in both rural and/or urban settings; and the effect on different population groups and impact on health inequalities is of particular interest.
