Shaping public health policies to reduce inequalities and harm (SPECTRUM)
We are a multi-university, multi-agency research consortium focused on the commercial determinants of health and health inequalities funded by the UK Prevention Research Partnership.
SPECTRUM will generate new evidence to inform the prevention of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) caused by unhealthy commodities, including tobacco, alcohol and unhealthy food and drink. Our research aims to transform policy and practice to encourage and enable healthy environments and behaviours.
Join our mailing list to receive the SPECTRUM newsletter, for updates on activity and progress across the Consortium.

The UKPRP vision is to generate fresh insights into actionable, sustainable and cost-effective ways of preventing non-communicable diseases in the UK.
