PA-EPI is officially launched!

PEN researchers present the Physical Activity Environment Policy Index (PA-EPI)

The Physical Activity Environment Policy Index (PA-EPI) is a tool to designed to help answer the overarching question: how much progress have governments made towards good practice in improving PA environments and implementing physical inactivity prevention policies and actions?

The PA environment is defined, for the purpose of the PA-EPI, as the collective physical, economic, political, and sociocultural contexts, opportunities, and conditions that influence one’s PA choices and behaviours.
