The Transport and Health Study Group (THSG) is an independent society of public health and transport practitioners and researchers committed to understanding and addressing the links between transport policies and health and promoting a healthy transport system. We were founded in the late 1980s by Dr. Stephen Morton.
The publication “Health on the Move” authored by the Transport & Health Study Group was the first definitive account of the relationship between transport and health. THSG later contributed to “Road Transport and Health” by the British Medical Association.
In 2009 THSG agreed to administer a Transport Special Interest Group for UKPHA.
