Diagnosis of Physical Activity in Western Australia

In 2011, as part of a broader strategic directions project, the Physical Activity Taskforce commissioned TNS Australia to conduct a diagnosis of physical activity in Western Australia.

The purpose of the diagnosis was to inform the development of Active Living for All, the new five year physical activity framework (2012 - 2016) for the State.

The diagnosis reviewed the past 10 years of outputs relating to policy, services, delivery models and interventions that support physical activity in Western Australia.

The findings showed that positive progress has been made towards increasing physical activity in Western Australia but that more needs to be done to increase commitments to physical activity in order to deliver significant behaviour change.

Five key priority areas emerged to inform the development of Active Living for All:

  1. To strengthen public policy
  2. To provide appropriate environments and programs (active places and active people)
  3. To increase public motivation and understanding
  4. To promote partnerships
  5. To increase research into practice.
