During the work session, attendees analyzed different strategies in the implementation in the community of "sports prescription" through prescription programs for physical activity and supervised physical exercise, in which professionals from the health sector (doctors and nurses) participate prescribing physical exercise and referring, where appropriate, to Graduates in Physical Activity and Sports Sciences, through multidisciplinary protocols in different primary care centers and hospitals.

Some of the programs carried out have had special mentions by the WHO itself as outstanding examples of good practices in primary care for the promotion of health through physical activity and physical exercise.
