Many health information activities related to nutrition and physical activity have been initiated by various institutions and European networks during the past years. This report assembles findings from the World Health Organization, the EU, various European networks, and national health institutions to create a coordinated health database focusing specifically on physical activity and nutrition. The central role of these factors in long-term health and illness underscores the importance of these data to each nation’s health status, and to the current state of its health monitoring, and reporting. This report provides recommendations for future health information activities on physical activity and nutrition. Whether the goal is identifying risk populations or heightening awareness of public health issues.

This comprehensive volume:



• Provides health data for EU member states and candidate countries, as well as the European Economic Area.


• Analyses health trends and the effectiveness of current programs by country.


• Reviews data collection methods and features a full analysis of the database.


• Pinpoints emerging and unresolved health issues and offers recommendations for future initiatives and study.


Physical Activity and Nutrition offers salient reading to professionals in public health, health promotion, international and global health, and disease prevention. Policymakers and others involved in the standardization of health and health awareness programs will especially be interested in this book.
