7. Health and Well-Being

7.7 Making health facilities more youth friendly

Since the programmes mentioned in this chapter are directed at the young community, many of the proposals aim to implement methods for such programmes to be more accessible to the aforementioned community.

It is worth mentioning the cases of programmes such as PERSEUS, since one of its strategies of prevention of sedentariness and diffusion of activities includes the use of resources for mobile devices and the Internet, as a way of publishing games and information on healthy physical activity. The evaluation depends of the centres that decide to implement this programme, which are key for the further developing of more specific activities in the frame of PERSEUS.

Also, the web Activilandia, which constitutes part of the Strategy for Nutrition, Physical Activity and Obesity Prevention (NAOS), is a Virtual Theme Park focused on children between 6 and 12 years old. With its audiovisual contents in the form of games, videos and music, it specifically pursues a healthy, varied, less calorie and balanced diet; the reduction of sedentariness by promoting the practice of habitual or regular physical activity and the promotion of health.
