Improving and upscaling primary prevention of cancer by addressing childhood obesity through implementation research

PREVENT aims to identify and overcome barriers in implementing effective strategies against childhood obesity as well as to improve the upscaling of primary interventions for weight control management in childhood and adolescence, with the ultimate goal of reducing cancer risks in adulthood.

The project will address upscaling challenges by researching barriers to current interventions and policies. It will introduce context-aware interventions and user engagement strategies to overcome bottlenecks and expand to diverse settings.
