Named Children and Youth Physical Activity (CYPAS), this research project aims to:
- Generate knowledge on physical activity in Thai children and youth
- Set up an online research database for scholars and a separate database for general public
- Disseminate knowledge in various forms to the general public for use in their daily life
- Build up capacity of Thai researchers on physical activity in children and youth and a research network by linking with local and international education institutions.
The research proposal has been approved with a budget of THB 9.7 million for 3 years, with a contract signed between Mahidol University and ThaiHealth.
