The COHESION Project was present at the Swiss Public Health Conference that took place in Neuchâtel 7-8 November 2018. The theme of the conference was “Better Health Faster: Social Science for Public Health”.
In the first day Professor Suzanne Suggs, co-applicant from Università della Svizzera italiana, gave a keynote entitled “Making Healthy Options Easy Options” where she highlighted that voluntary behavior change happens when a mix of capability, motivation and opportunity is used. This is consistent with what our project aims to do.
In the second day, Nathaly Aya Pastrana, PhD student of our project, presented the results of the global policy analysis conducted by the COHESION project examining the factors that led to an increase in the priority given to NTDs at the global level.
