Health and Health Promotion An Important Issue on ISCA Social Agenda

Over the past few years, there has been an increasing tendency for unhealthy populations because of bad diets and lack of exercise. International and national organisations, such as The EU, the WHO and national Ministries of Health have put more focus on the need to raise awareness for healthier lifestyles through doing physical activity and having a healthy diet. In line with the EU and WHO strategies on Diet, Physical Education and Health, ISCA decided has developed a health programme for our members.


What is the ISCA Health Programme?

The ISCA Health Programme involves supporting and strengthening member Sports For All organisations to develop your own national health and physical activity promotion campaigns. ISCA is aware that Sports For All organisations are competent partners in the area of physical activity programmes. They can also become powerful partners in promoting a healthy lifestyle through physical activity.
