European Physical Activity on Prescription (EUPAP)
Malta participated in a EU-funded project titled Transferring the Swedish Physical Activity on Prescription the PAP model. Swedish Physical activity on prescription (PAP, in Swedish FaR®)is a method that involves counselling and prescription of exercise in an individualised manner based on the client's health circumstances. Malta via the Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Directorate (HPDP) with the collaboration of the Physiotherapy Services participated in this project and trained Maltese health care professionals on the PAP method, further stressing the important role that physical activity has in the management of a number of non-communicable diseases.
As part of this project, various types of physical activity opportunities in different localities in Malta and Gozo were mapped below. This resource provides ideas and locations of different types of physical activity opportunities to suit the needs, abilities and preferences of different individuals.
