Conference Paper
Background Travel has individual, societal and planetary health implications. We explored socioeconomic and gendered differences in travel behaviour in Africa, to develop an understanding of travel-related inequity. Methods We conducted a mixed-methods systematic review (PROSPERO CRD42019124802). In 2019, we searched MEDLINE, TRID, SCOPUS, Web of...

The literature on urban travel behaviour in Africa is sparse, limiting our understanding of how urban transport policies respond to human and planetary needs. We conducted a cross-sectional household telephone survey on 1334 participants, using a 24 h time-use diary, to investigate travel behaviour and barriers to active travel (walking and cycling...

Full-text available
In light of global environmental crises and the need for sustainable development, the fields of public health and environmental sciences have become increasingly interrelated. Both fields require interdisciplinary thinking and global solutions, which is largely directed by scientific progress documented in peer-reviewed journals. Journal editors pl...

Introduction Low household socioeconomic status is associated with unhealthy behaviours including poor diet and adverse health outcomes. Different methods leading to variations in SES classification has the potential to generate spurious research findings or misinform policy. In low and middle-income countries, there are additional complexities in...

Objectives To present the protocol for a systematic review synthesising quantitative and qualitative evidence in academic and grey literature on intersectoral interventions to address non-communicable disease risk factors in urban Africa. Study design This protocol is developed in accordance with the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Review...
Article
Aims: To synthesize evidence on the impact of context-based interventions on the participation of children with disabilities in the community. Methods: A systematic review was conducted using the American Academy for Cerebral Palsy and Developmental Medicine Guidelines for systematic reviews. Seven databases were searched; articles included were...

Public spaces have the potential to produce equitable improvements in population health. This mixed-methods systematic review aims to understand the components of, determinants, risks, and outcomes associated with public space initiatives in African cities. This study will include quantitative and qualitative study designs that describe public spac...

Article
Full-text available
The triple burden of malnutrition in many low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) is partly a result of changing food environments and a shift from traditional diets to high-calorie Western-style diets. Exploring the relationship between food sources and food- and nutrition-related outcomes is important to understanding how changes in food environ...

IntroductionThe nutritional transition is fuelling a concerning rise in Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) in Low and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs). These countries lack strong health infrastructure capable of supporting the long-term and expensive medical treatment for those living with NCDs. It is important to identify stakeholders involved in in...
Article
Full-text available
Background Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, one in two people in Africa were food insecure. The burden of malnutrition remains high (e.g. childhood stunting, anaemia in women of reproductive age) or are increasing (e.g. overweight and obesity). A range of coordinated actions are required to improve this situation, including increasing local food...
Article
In many low- and middle-income countries, urbanisation and urban development are characterised by hazards that conspire with climatic risks and socio-economic vulnerability to influence population health inequality now and in the future. A large part of the epidemiological profile across countries in the �Global South�, has been influenced by a rap...
Article
Full-text available
At the time of writing, it is unclear how the COVID-19 pandemic will play out in rapidly urbanising regions of the world. In these regions, the realities of large overcrowded informal settlements, a high burden of infectious and non-communicable diseases, as well as malnutrition and precarity of livelihoods, have raised added concerns about the pot...

BACKGROUND The increasing burden of non-communicable diseases (NCDs), which are prevalent in low and middle income countries (LMICs), is largely attributed to modifiable behavioural risk factors such as poor/unhealthy diets and insufficient physical activity (PA). The adolescent stage–recently defined as 10-24 years of age–is an important formative...

Article
Full-text available
Background Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are the leading cause of death globally. While upstream approaches to tackle NCD risk factors of poor quality diets and physical inactivity have been trialled in high income countries (HICs), there is little evidence from low and middle-income countries (LMICs) that bear a disproportionate NCD burden. Sub...

BACKGROUND The gap between research and its practical application in community settings limits its impact on public health. Closing this gap has the potential to improve the well-being of underserved groups, such as children with disabilities. Mobile health holds promise in closing this gap by helping underserved populations build community and imp...

We highlight aspects of the ordinary – known interactions between urban environments and physical activity – that are amplified by the extraordinary – the COVID-19 pandemic in Lagos, Nigeria. Leisure physical activity is shaped by local contexts, and pandemic-related changes may have altered existing trade-offs between the benefits and risks of und...
Article
Full-text available
Participation in physical and leisure activity opportunities is critical to the health and wellbeing of children. However, resources and policy interventions that can facilitate participation are usually limited for children with disabilities and their families. Decision-makers can benefit from research evidence to inform the development of program...

BACKGROUND Access to healthy food is considered a key determinant of dietary behaviour and there is mixed evidence that living near a supermarket is associated with a healthier diet. In Africa, supermarkets may contribute to the nutrition transition by offering both healthy and unhealthy foods; and by replacing traditional food sellers. In Kisumu,...

Article
The burden of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) is rising rapidly in low-middle income countries. Poorly planned urbanization exponentially increases the burden of behavioral risk factors for NCDs. Contexts where people live, work, play and pray are not conducive to wellbeing, particularly the healthy behaviours people are often encouraged to adopt....

This 2nd collection of case studies, the Compendium of Inspiring Practices: Health Edition, showcases 20 urban and territorial planning projects that positively and explicitly contribute to human health through the improvement of the built and natural environment.
Article
While cities may have compelling agendas for urban health, it is necessary for that vision to be translated into the work of their ministries and local governments. We qualitatively explored how workers in the urban service delivery sectors understood their priorities and the place of health in their agenda. Based on the interviews, we propose the...

CITY KNOW-HOW Human health and planetary health are both influenced by city lifestyles, city leadership, and city development. For both, worrying trends are leading to increasing concern. It is imperative that both become core foci in urban policy. Changing the trajectory will require concerted action. The journal Cities & Health journal is dedicat...
