Health & Behaviour

Health-care professionals, patients, families, community leaders, and policy makers all struggle to understand the interactions between health and behaviour, and to use that knowledge to improve the health status of individuals and populations. Health and behaviour are related in myriad ways, yet those interactions are neither simple nor straightforward.

Researchers in the Institute for Health and Behaviour investigate links between health and behaviour, the influence of economic, social, and genetic factors on these behaviours, and interventions to improve health through modifying behaviour or personal relationships.
