Health in Action (Ação Saudável) in Brazil

INMED collaborated with partner organization Instituto Esporte e Educação (IEE) to increase children’s participation in physical activity as part of our Health in Action (Ação Saudável) program in Chã de Alegria, Brazil. Through fun school-based physical education, leisure time recreation and play, daily exercise becomes a habit. By the end of the program, there was a 54% reduction in sedentary behavior and a 24% increase in physical activity on three or more days per week.
