Thailand Health Promotion Foundation: Physical health research project

AUN–HPN has successfully been granted a 3-year research project on physical activity by Thai Health Promotion Foundation (ThaiHealth).

Named Children and Youth Physical Activity (CYPAS), this research project aims to:

  1. Generate knowledge on physical activity in Thai children and youth
  2. Set up an online research database for scholars and a separate database for general public
  3. Disseminate knowledge in various forms to the general public for use in their daily life
  4. 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.
