By Gary Ginsberg, Elliot Rosenberg

Myers-JDC-Brookdale Institute, 2011

Physical inactivity (or sedentariness) is a serious and expensive risk factor for many chronic diseases. Approximately NIS 1.5 billion in direct healthcare costs may be attributed to sedentariness in Israel in 2008. This represents 0.2% of Israel's GNP. In this study, cost-utility ratios of interventional modalities for increasing physical activity were calculated by incorporating local Israel epidemiologic, economic and demographic parameters into published international analyses.
