Description:
The guidelines begin the process of setting national policy on physical activity in Ireland in terms of health, education, environment, sport and transport. According to the World Health Organisation, physical activity “interacts positively with strategies to improve diet, discourages the use of tobacco, alcohol and drugs, helps reduce violence, enhances functional capacity and promotes social interaction and integration.” (WHO, 2003) The steering group reviewed international research (see page 25) and consulted with professionals in Ireland, Australia, the US and the UK (see page 26), to ensure that the guidelines reflect the international expertise and evidence which support the importance of physical activity for people’s health.
