EPODE FOR THE PROMOTION OF HEALTH EQUITY
THE BOOK

The EPODE model enables communities to implement effective and sustainable strategies to prevent childhood obesity. Its philosophy includes a positive, step-by-step approach, without any stigmatisation, tailored to the needs of all socio-economic groups. To foster the development of the EPODE methodology, the EPHE project (EPODE for the Promotion of Health Equity) aimed to understand whether the implementation of the EPODE model can facilitate the reduction of health inequities related to socio- economic status.

Part 1 of this book contextualises the genesis of the project, based on the EPODE methodology and connects research and practice to federate, give value, and sustainably enrich existing local actions and programmes aimed at preventing childhood obesity.

Part 2 of this book provides a comprehensive overview of the evaluation framework developed for the project, describes the interventions that the programmes undertook and its results.

The EPHE Book should be of interest for European scientific experts, policy makers, national and local authorities, public health professionals, private actors and other stakeholders interested in contributing to the prevention of childhood obesity through the EPODE methodology and similar initiatives.
