The UK Prevention Research Partnership (UKPRP) is investing £25m to understand and influence the social, economic and environmental factors that affect people and their health in its first-ever funding round.
The funding is earmarked for eight projects to tackle bigger-picture factors behind the prevention of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) – illnesses that cannot be passed from person to person such as heart disease, obesity, poor mental health, cancer and diabetes. NCDs make up the majority of illnesses in the UK, and account for around 89% of all deaths.
