Developing guidance and a practical tool for economic assessment of health effects from walking: expert meeting in Oxford, United Kingdom, 1-2 July 2010

The development of a Health Economic Assessment Tool (HEAT) for walking is led by a core group of experts and supported by an international advisory group. Reviews of the epidemiological and economic literature are underway as a basis for the development of the guidance and the tool. The final products are planned to be available in early 2011.

A similar tool for estimating the health benefits of cycling is already available.
