Diseases of affluence form a growing threat for Amsterdam youth. The scientific knowledge currently available is insufficient to reverse this threat. Sarphati Amsterdam is focusing on research into health disparities in relation to the social and physical environment. The research studies should help translate this knowledge into interventions that focus on reducing health disparities in Amsterdam.
The Sarphati Amsterdam research results aim to offer unique insights into promoting healthy growth and development among Amsterdam youth. For instance, the research can explore why some children have an increased risk of becoming overweight or obese, the consequences of this and possible interventions.
More information on the focus of Sarphati Amsterdam research can be found in our Research Programme.
Various projects and research studies are being conducted under the Sarphati Amsterdam flag. A brief description per study is given below. Do you have ideas for a good addition to this portfolio? If so, please contact us and share your ideas for a new study or intervention. We’d be delighted to discuss these with you!
