We believe passionately in empowering people to live active and healthy lives.

Around the world, physical inactivity is identified as the fourth greatest cause of mortality with negative impacts on health, social and economic outcomes for individuals and communities. It is responsible for as many deaths as smoking. Only half of all adults and less than a third of children aged 2-17 meet the physical activity guidelines for Australians.

Healthcare settings provide a unique opportunity to support understanding and awareness of, and greater engagement in, physical activity amongst some of the least active members of our population. It is for this reason Moving Medicine was created.

Moving Medicine provides healthcare professionals with accessible, evidence based, condition specific information to help give advice on physical activity. The project was born in the UK in collaboration with experts, professional bodies and charities representing patients and healthcare professionals in each disease area. The Faculty of Sport and Exercise Medicine UK have partnered with the Australasian College of Sport and Exercise Physicians to bring the Moving Medicine resources to Australia and New Zealand.

We would love to hear from you if you would like to join this work or have other ideas to improve Moving Medicine.
