Research from the Spotlight project is published in a series of papers in a special issue of the scientific journal Obesity Reviews.
“This collection of papers provides a robust evidence base for policy-makers,”
Said the issue co-editor, Dr Harry Rutter of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
“It provides the latest systematic reviews of the literature along with new survey data and analyses across a range of European urban neighbourhoods. We have known for some years that where a person lives will affect their health, and now we can see more clearly exactly how that happens in practice, and what we need to do about it.”
