Pieth, J; Grabherr, M; Navarra, K; Besic, O; Zuppinger, B; Lehmann, A; Martin, B W (2009). Information material for migrant populations in Switzerland: the example of physical activity promotion. Schweizerische Zeitschrift für Sportmedizin und Sporttraumatologie, 57(2):87-89.

Abstract

In order to develop information material on physical activity and
sports for migrant populations, the specific needs of these target
groups with regard to motivation, barriers and accessibility were
analysed. Based on the results, an information brochure was developed
and its use was evaluated both by monitoring of incoming
orders and by semi-structured interviews with professionals. The
main motives and obstacles for physical activity of different migrant
groups as well as other important topics to be covered were
identified. Important insights could be gained regarding design
and distribution. Brochures in eight different languages were published,
ordered and distributed. Most of the conclusions from the
needs assessment were confirmed in the evaluation and possibilities
for further developments were identified.
