Health posters: physical activity

In the 2000s promotion of physical activity was a major public health initiative. This poster, published by the Ministry of Health in conjunction with Sport and Recreation New Zealand (SPARC), suggests that people should remain active for their health's sake as they grow older and perhaps move into sedentary jobs.
