Physical Activity: Community-Wide Campaigns

Description of Resource: 
The Community Preventive Services Task Force recommends community-wide campaigns to increase physical activity and improve physical fitness among adults and children. Community-wide campaigns to increase physical activity are interventions that involve many community sectors; include highly visible, broad-based, multicomponent strategies (e.g., social support, risk factor screening or health education); and may also address other cardiovascular disease risk factors, particularly diet and smoking.
