Contributor: Health Intervention and Technology Assessment Program


Physical Activity at Work (PAW) program is a collaborative research between Health Intervention and Technology Assessment Program (HITAP), Department of Medical Services (DMS), Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health (SSHSPH) and Hitotsubashi University. As sedentary behaviours (SBs) are known to be associated with higher risks of all-cause mortality, non-communicable diseases and other health problems, this study explores these relationships using physical activity intervention, at different behavioural levels. The aim is to evaluate the impact of short-break office intervention on sedentary behaviours (SBs) and physical activity by conducting a clustered randomised controlled trial at the department of Medical Service, Ministry of Public Health, Thailand. The study will be the first study in the country to investigate the effect of a short-break intervention at the workplace on SBs of office workers and health outcomes as well as evaluating cost-effectiveness to inform investments on short break interventions in Thailand.
