Advance Australia Active – AM

The AMA has adopted a new policy it hopes will inspire Australians to restore exercise as a central part of the Australian way of life, AMA President, Dr Mukesh Haikerwal,// said today.

“Australia has long been known as a great sporting country, with a robust culture of physical activity and the outdoors,” Dr Haikerwal said.

“Regular physical activity helps to maintain good health, protects against a range of chronic diseases, and plays an important role in managing many chronic diseases,” he said.

At the core of the Position Statement is the principle that Australian Governments must do more to encourage ordinary Australians to incorporate more movement into their lives.

“The Federal Government should move beyond support for elite athletes to provide funding and opportunities for all Australians to get more active and healthy,” Dr Haikerwal said.

“The Government has a responsibility to contribute to the improved health and wellbeing of Australians by making it easier for people of all ages to exercise every day.”

The AMA calls for:

1. Cities to be designed to encourage safe physical activity, both formal and incidental, through the provision of facilities like playgrounds, cycle paths and walkways.
