To present evidence and unmet needs in addressing the intention to change health risk behaviors (HRB) in public health intervention. Special emphasis is given to the population impact.Existing evidence was analyzed according to intention to change HRB and outcome. Evidence according to public health intervention approaches, that are focused on supporting the intention to change HRB, has revealed positive outcomes. These effects increase with time after the onset of the intervention. Interventions focused on the intention to change HRB are a promising but under-researched and under-practised contribution to improve public health.
