Sustainability of the impact of a public health intervention etc (abstract)

To inform health promotion practice regarding the sustainability of public health interventions, the authors interviewed the directors of 13 new communitybased organizations created through a practitioner-initiated public health intervention designed to promote physical activity at the community level. The purpose of the interviews was to uncover the factors that lead organization directors to become involved in the initiative and to maintain their involvement across an extended period of time. Results showed that there were 3 categories of positive outcomes associated with leading a walking club: maintaining and improving health, personal satisfaction, and group motivation.
