Public health interventions for increasing physical activity in children, adolescents and adults: an overview of systematic reviews

This is a protocol for a Cochrane Review (overview). The objectives are as follows:

This overview intends to: a) summarise the existing evidence on interventions that aim to increase PA; b) explore whether any effects of the intervention are different within and between populations, and whether these differences form an equity gradient such as an effect that differs according the advantage/disadvantage (e.g. low income and ethnic minorities); c) highlight gaps in the present evidence base that may warrant a Cochrane systematic review to be completed; and c) identify 'up to date' Cochrane reviews. .

This is a protocol.
