Do you move?
A lack of physical activity and increasing sedentary behaviour are prominent issues in the 21st century.
Although (lifestyle) prevention is gaining importance within healthcare, it appears that in Belgium we are still lagging behind. At Hict, we want to contribute to better prevention policy, and our collaboration with Fitness.be is a good example of this. We evaluated the potential health and economic impact of gym usage in Belgium.
But still much remains to be done. So today, on #WorldDayforPhysicalActivity, we call for more attention for the promotion of an active and healthy lifestyle. And ideally, this should be as part of a bigger ambition of a shift towards a preventive mindset in healthcare.
Stay active! Stay healthy!
