Be Active – Be Healthy. Northern Ireland Physical Activity Strategy 1996 - 2002

Creator:

Subject Keywords: Health related physical activity
Topic: Obesity
Chronic Conditions
Obesity
Type: Strategy
Region: Northern Ireland
Description:

The overall aim of this strategy is to increase levels of health related physical activity particularly among those who exercise least. The need to develop such a strategy, which would focus on the sedentary population, was highlighted by the Northern Ireland Health and Activity Survey published in 1994. This survey revealed that over one quarter (29%) of the adult population would have difficulty in climbing stairs without some assistance or would only be capable of doing so unaided at a very slow pace. Be active - be healthy provides a framework for action to increase physical activity levels among the whole of the Northern Ireland population.
