WP3 Evaluation of project

WP Leader:        Academic Medical Centre – University of Amsterdam, Netherlands / University of Edinburgh, UK

Main Objectives:

  • Evaluating if the project is implemented as planned, and reaches the objectives

Main Deliverables:

Periodic report and Final report

WP4 In-depth analysis of existing interventions

WP Leader:        Norwegian Centre for Minority Health Research, Norway / University of Oslo, Norway

Main Objectives:

  • To assess the strategies to promote behavioural change, in particular diet, among South Asian populations in Europe by evaluating their acceptability and effectiveness in different subgroups and contexts. To identify effective intervention elements that should be kept, as well as elements that need to be changed

Main Deliverables:

Draft scientific paper on the differential effectiveness of the intervention across population subgroups

Draft scientific paper on acceptability and perceived effectiveness of intervention elements among lay target groups (e.g. participants) and professionals

Report containing the synthesis of evidence on the intervention elements

WP5 Validation of strategies to optimize existing health promotion strategies

WP Leader:        Academic Medical Centre – University of Amsterdam, Netherlands

Main Objectives:

  • To identify elements, both novel and from the evaluations in WP4, and:
  • To test the validity of strategies that seem promising for increasing the reach, acceptability and effectiveness of existing interventions aimed promoting the uptake and maintenance in cross-cultural setting.

Main Deliverables:

Draft scientific paper on effective strategies to optimize health promotion among South Asians and Final report effective strategies

WP6 Evaluating current dietary goals and novel targets

WP Leader:        Academic Medical Centre – University of Amsterdam, Netherlands / University of Glasgow, UK

Main Objectives:

  • To identify specific dietary components that influence the high risk of T2D in South Asian origin people living in Europe by considering current dietary recommendations, and novel mechanisms in the relation between diet and T2D in these populations

Main Deliverables:

Draft scientific paper on effectiveness of current dietary goals

Draft scientific paper on lipid intake and lipotoxicity markers and their association with incident T2D

Final report current and novel goals

WP7 Developing recommendations

WP Leader:        University of Edinburgh, UK

Main Objectives:

  • To integrate the outcomes of the individual core WPs (WP4-WP6), and translate this knowledge into recommendations for effective health promotion strategies to prevent T2D in South Asian populations living in Europe, with a focus on diet. This WP, will also embed the summative evaluation from WP3

Main Deliverables:

The main deliverable from this WP is the report on Recommendations for health promotion to prevent T2D among South Asians
