Public Health Scotland has published the process evaluation of the Whole Systems Approach (WSA) to the diet and healthy weight early adopter programme, which is accompanied by a suite of case studies.
In partnership with Scottish Government, Food Standards Scotland and Obesity Action Scotland, PHS supported local areas, known as “early adopters”, to pilot a WSA to diet and healthy weight. This focused on children and health inequalities.
The evaluation sets out the context and methodology of the WSA to diet and healthy weight. It assesses the strengths and limitations of the approach, and makes key recommendations for national and local partners.
