Trajectories of self-reported physical activity and predictors during the transition to old age: a 20-year cohort study of Brtiitish men

Maintenance of physical activity (PA) during later life is associated with optimal health; however, the long-term trajectories of PA into old age and their predictors have not been extensively researched using latent class methods. This study aimed to identify trajectories of self-reported PA and their predictors in men transitioning from midlife to old age.


Manual para el cuidado de personas con enfermedades crónicas no transmisibles: manejo integral en el primer nivel de atención

Constituye una herramienta que intenta integrar, consolidar y simplificar la implementación de recomendaciones dirigidas a las enfermedades no trasmisibles y sus factores de riesgo, a modo de facilitar su utilización por parte del equipo del Primer Nivel de Atención. Intenta ser referencia para el rastreo y control de las ECNT y sus factores de riesgo: diabetes, hipertensión arterial, tabaquismo, obesidad y riesgos cardiovascular y renal. Incluye un capítulo con las recomendaciones de las prácticas que deberían integrar el control periódico de salud del adulto, y un capítulo donde se desarrolla el modelo de atención de personas con enfermedades crónicas (MAPEC)


NCD Alliance Campaign Priorities - The 2018 United Nations High-Level Meeting on NCDs

This brie ng paper aims to inform civil society and partners about the crucial opportunity of the 2018 UN High-Level Meeting on NCDs (UN HLM) to mobilise political leadership and new resources and action to improve the lives of people affected by NCDs worldwide, and to guide advocacy at global, regional and national level for strong commitments at the UN HLM.


Eficacia y seguridad del cribado cardiovascular en deportistas jóvenes

Estudio epidemiológico retrospectivo utilizando los datos de un exhaustivo registro de paradas cardiacas extrahospitalarias en una región de Canadá. El objetivo era establecer la incidencia de la parada cardiaca en deportistas jóvenes y las causas de las mismas.


Physical activity for health More active people for a healthier world: draft global action plan on physical activity 2018–2030

Regular physical activity is a well-established risk factor for the prevention and treatment of the leading noncommunicable diseases (NCD), namely heart disease, stroke, diabetes and breast and colon cancer1. It also contributes to the prevention of other important NCD risk factors such as hypertension, overweight and obesity, and is associated with improved mental health, delay in the onset of dementia2 and improved quality of life and well-being3.


Designing healthy communities: creating evidence on metrics for built environment features associated with walkable neighbourhood activity centres

Active transport – including walking for transport– [1–4] is both health-promoting and supports sustainable living [5, 6]. A growing body of international evidence [7–10], shows the built environment plays an important role in creating pedestrian-friendly neighbourhoods that promote walking and reduce chronic disease risk factors.

A number of built environment features are consist- ently shown to facilitate transport walking around resi- dential homes, which are the origins of many walking trips. These include: highly connected streets, high population density, mixed land use and good access to destinations and transit, and sidewalk provision [11–15]. However, to inform planning policy and urban design guidelines, policy-makers and urban designers require specific information on the types, quantities and mix of built environment features that influence walking [3, 16–21]. Moreover, most of the research to date has fo- cused on the home environment [22], with less research focused on the end points of those trips.
