Promoting physical activity complements national strategies to improve nutrition, and to reduce tobacco, drug and alcohol use. It also impacts positively on efforts to enhance social environments through reduced violence and improved social interaction and integration. These widespread benefits underpin the need to establish and integrate public policy on physical activity in the context of health, education, environment, sport and transport at national and local levels. The publication in 2009 of The National Guidelines on Physical Activity for Ireland is an important step in this process. The guidelines establish a national consensus, based on international expert opinion and evidence, on appropriate levels of health enhancing physical activity for the Irish population.
