    This article focuses on results of the systematic review from the Guide for Useful Interventions for Activity in Latin America project related to school-based physical education (PE) programs in Latin America. The aims of the article are to describe five school-based PE programs from Latin America, discuss implications for effective school-based PE recommendations, propose approaches for implementing these interventions, and identify gaps in the research literature related to physical activity promotion in Latin American youth.

  • Physical Activity Interventions in Latin America: Expanding and Classifying the Evidence

    Am J Prev Med 2013;44(3):e31– e40

    Christine M. Hoehner, PhD, Isabela C. Ribeiro, PhD, Diana C. Parra, MPH, Rodrigo S. Reis, PhD, Mario R. Azevedo, MSc, Adriano A. Hino, MSc, Jesus Soares, PhD, Pedro C. Hallal, PhD, Eduardo J. Simões, MD, MSc, MPH, Ross C. Brownson, PhD

    Systematic reviews of public health interventions are useful for identifying effective strat- egies for informing policy and practice. The goals of this review were to (1) update a previous systematic review of physical activity interventions in Latin America which found that only school- based physical education had sufficient evidence to recommend widespread adoption; (2) assess the reporting of external validity elements; and (3) develop and apply an evidence typology for classifying interventions.
