Review the limitations in cross‐sectoral health outcomes research and suggest a future research agenda.

Data Sources, Study Design, Data Collection:

Literature review and workshop discussion.

Principal Findings:

The research evidence that would aid public and private policy makers in answering the question the title poses is quite limited.


Much more evidence from diverse disciplines is needed, and key areas are suggested. Criteria for progress by 2010 are proposed.
