Mauritius Doctors Recommend Physical Activity To Tackle Non-communicable Diseases In The Country

Mauritius doctors have recommended prescription of physical activity instead of medications to tackle non-communicable diseases in the country.

The country’s minister of health and quality of life, Dr. Anwar Husnoo, said in a speech at a workshop on the implementation of exercise prescription, that his government is strongly committed to fighting the non-communicable disease scourge in the country. He said this is worsened by low levels of physical activity. He says only a quarter of the adult population meets the world health organization, W.H.O., recommendations of a hundred fifty minutes of physical activity per week.
