On behalf of the World Health Organisation, NHS Scotland selected 29 case studies from 91 that were submitted from across Europe. The selection was subsequently reviewed and validated by an Expert Group and World Health Organisation secretariat staff.
Working wih NHS Scotland, Get Walking Keep Walking will be further analysed in more detail to describe: interventions and their applied approaches; target groups; overall effects and results and lessons learned. The report will be discussed by a World Health Organisation Expert Group and will be published as part of an overarching WHO document, due for publication in 2012. In the interim period, selected case studies will be published on the NHS Health Scotland website, with a link from the WHO website.
