Age, period and cohort effects on body mass index in New Zealand, 1997-2038.
CONCLUSIONS: BMI continues to increase in New Zealand. On current trends, population mean BMI will exceed 30 kg/m2 - the clinical cut-off for obesity - by the early 2030s. Implications for public health: Unless prevented by comprehensive public health policy changes, increasing population obesity is likely to result in unfavourable economic and health impacts.

Youth perceptions of alcohol advertising: are current advertising regulations working?
CONCLUSIONS: Young people's perceptions of alcohol advertising are not necessarily in line with expert/industry assessment; products are sometimes marketed in a way that is highly appealing to young people. Greater appeal was associated with increased intention to consume and to purchase products.

Fluoride concentration in drinking water samples in Fiji.
CONCLUSION: All samples had fluoride concentrations below the optimum level required to prevent dental caries. Implications for public health: This research forms part of the objectives of the 2011 National Oral Health Survey in Fiji. At present, Fiji lacks water fluoridation and therefore a baseline of the fluoride content in drinking water supplies is essential before water fluoridation is implemented. The results from this study would be beneficial in designing caries-preventive strategies through water fluoridation and for comparing those strategies with caries prevalence overtime.

Exploring the use of economic evidence to inform investment in disease prevention - a qualitative study.
Conclusions and Implications for public health: Promoting the greater use of economic evidence in prevention requires more work on two fronts: tailoring the methods used by economists to better match the organisational imperatives of end users; and promoting greater consideration of broader societal and health sector perspectives among end users. This will require significant infrastructure development, monitoring and evaluation, stronger national leadership and a greater emphasis on evidence coproduction.

Uneven progress in reducing exposure to violence at home for New Zealand adolescents 2001-2012: a nationally representative cross-sectional survey series.
Abstract OBJECTIVE: To explore trends, and identify risk factors, that may explain changes in adolescent exposure to family violence over time. METHODS: Data for this study was drawn from the Youth 2000 series of cross-sectional surveys, carried out with New Zealand high school students in 2001, 2007 and 2012. Latent class analysis was used to understand different patterns of exposure to multiple risks for witnessing violence at home among adolescents. RESULTS: Across all time periods, there was no change in witnessing emotional violence and a slight decline in witnessing physical violence at home. Howev...

Intentional self-harm and assault hospitalisations and treatment cost of children in Australia over a 10-year period.
Abstract OBJECTIVE: To examine the magnitude, 10-year temporal trends and treatment cost of intentional injury hospitalisations of children aged ≤16 years in Australia.

A potential Human Rights Act in Queensland and inclusion of the right to health.
CONCLUSION: This study found strong support in the majority of submissions for the Queensland Parliament to draft and enact a HRAQ, and for the inclusion of the right to health in such legislation.
