Below are summarised some of my many interests.

This is an ongoing research project to set up a computer-based data-base of evaluated health education /promotion interventions in developing countries. The initial stage has been completed with over 600 publications reviewed and 350 entered into the database. Further analysis of the entries is being carried out to develop a book on evidence-based health promotion to be funded by DFID.
