role of physical activity guidelines
Role of Physical Activity Guidelines
  • Justify expenditure of public funds for promotion and programming
    • Science to establish legitimacy among other public health interventions
  • Define benefits to be expected by various population groups and the necessary dose of activity
  • Unified message and behavior targets
    • Consistent metrics for short- & long-term evaluation
  • Support economic arguments in terms of health care cost savings as well as moral justification based on equity and human rights
key messages
Key Messages
  • Provision of information alone, even scientifically-based physical activity guidelines, is not sufficient to bring about behavior change.
  • Physical activity guidelines are necessary, but not sufficient, to increase levels of health-enhancing physical activity.
  • Action at multiple levels is needed to support health-enhancing physical activity.
