Publications & resources

We can conduct research and analysis on nearly any topic related to healthy behaviours, non-communicable diseases (NCDs) and prevention. We then adeptly translate that research into actionable, plain English.

Our writing portfolio includes published journal articles, workshop reports, rapid reviews, scoping exercises, books and case studies. We’ve written for organisations such as Novo Nordisk A/S, the Health Foundation, PepsiCo, The Framework Convention Alliance, and the World Health Organization.
