Health and sports programmes help EU countries respond effectively to economic and demographic challenges facing their social systems.
The SWEATY HEARTS project promotes voluntary activities in sport, together with social inclusion and awareness of the importance of health-enhancing physical activity through increased participation in, and equal access to, sport for all in particular for cardiac patients. Project partners design programs where patients, organized in groups, follow active sessions of physical activity and educational sessions about healthy lifestyles. The integrated phase is followed by an independent phase where patients are still monitored and encouraged to continue with physical activity. Specific responsibilities of Dekut within the project:
