A concise summary of the rationale, methods and intentions of ISPAH’s Eight Investments That Work for Physical Activity advocacy document.
In November 2020, ISPAH launched “Eight Investments That Work for Physical Activity” #8Investments. Now, a summary of the Eight Investments has been published in the Journal of Physical Activity and Health (JPAH; doi.org/10.1123/jpah.2021-0112).
The JPAH article explains how, given the expanding evidence base, it was timely to review and update the 2011 Investments that Work for Physical Activity – a milestone document in physical activity advocacy.
The article affirms that the largest population health benefit will be achieved through a combination of #8investments in a systems-based approach.
