We are constantly seeking to inform the community at large about the results found from the project’s activities and generate capacity building through the use of training workshops. We encourage others to use systematic observations to assess physical activity, and offer E-learning courses on physical activity and public health to help. Project GUIA also developed a physical activity handbook for health educators, physical activity instructors, and other public health researchers, including methods to measure physical activity that we have successfully implemented. Our handbook is available in both Spanish and Portuguese and can be downloaded free of charge under the instruments and protocols section below.
