Abstract

that built environment determinates on the population’s health status. In this context, possible correlations between urban environment and Physical Activity (PA), considered as the adoption of healthy lifestyles to prevent chronic diseases and metabolic disorders, such as stairs climbing, walking, and cycling. Furthermore, there are still few studies that correlate urban quality as an endpoint, including the environmental component, with psychological well-being and health, safety standards. Starting from a systematic review, the aim of the research is to present a population survey based on Evidence Based Public Health, to understand the acceptability and effectiveness of current interventions on built environment. Databases used were Pubmed, Cinhal, Ebsco, Proquest, Psychinfo, SSRN e Google Scholar. The research in progress is applied to an urban area of Milan, interested by the implementation of existing projects run by pedestrian and cycling network. The survey was administered through online and paper-based questionnaires composed by 25 items on attitudes to transports in the area and citizen medical conditions related. The systematic search has brought to 3 567 431 results which we selected for a qualitative analysis (n44) based on quality and data reported. 10% of selected articles based on research question coerence were eliminated due to data underreporting and attrition bias. Nowadays in Italy, results gathered are poor, due to difficult linkage with epidemiological big data that tell about population health status over time. Further analyses are expected at the end of questionnaire collection.
