Abstract

Research evidence on health determinants have led to develop a national strategy for health promotion in order to reduce NCD mortality in Macedonia. The aim was to analyze and evaluate the results obtained from the new “cross-sectional” study for dietary habits and physical activity levels monitoring (2011). The results indicate that the promotion of health through improving physical activity and dietary habits should be focused on younger age groups and adults over 50. Concerning the changes in dietary habits, most important are radical change in the food market and food production including availability of whole grain bread and eliminating “fast food.” © 2011 Published by Elsevier Ltd. Selection and/or peer-review under responsibility of the University “St. Kliment Ohridski”–Bitola, Faculty of Tourism and Hospitality-Ohrid, Republic of Macedonia. Keywords: health promotion strategy, prevention, dietary habit, physical activity level, noncommunicable disease, lifestyle intervention.
