HDA publications

Many Health Development Agency (HDA) publications are available in PDF format below. These publications were either:

  • produced by the HDA, or
  • commissioned by them, but published after its functions were transferred to NICE.

While these publications help support evidence-based decision making by public health practitioners, they do not represent NICE guidance.

Physical activity 'at our age': Qualitative research among people over the age of 50

This report investigates what people in the 50+ age group actually think about physical activity, what motivates them to try various activities, and most importantly, what are the important factors that discourage them from taking part. Physical activity is necessary for general fitness and well-being, including avoiding stiffness, weight control, stress reduction and other mental benefits (mental stimulation and avoidance of isolation and loneliness).
