Publication: Development of the health promoting sports club—national audit tool

Research Impact: Sports clubs have requested support from national governing authorities to invest in health promotion (HP), by developing policies, guidelines and dedicated funding. This article outlines the development of a national audit tool to review policy development and implementation to support HP in sports clubs.  This tool has been created through a collaboration with the World Health Organisation and the contribution of 9 international researchers. To progress HP in the sports club context it is necessary to understand existing national-level policies. This national audit tool will aid in monitoring and assessing national policies for health promoting sports clubs. The tool can be found on the World Health Organisation website:
