Specialized center of Health and Physical Activity
 
Introduction
With the growing development of sciences, it has been shown that operational actions as supplement strategies have been taken to improve the quality of life. According to leading scientists in different fields, both scientific research and its application in human society will effectively and mutually develop the two of them.
The field of human sciences in Iran, as a developing country, requires much more attention because it is directly related to human life and social/public health. Factors directly affecting the quality of life in a community and consequently influencing people's performance in daily affairs include their physical, psychological and social health. Considering the modern lifestyle that has affected most of the societies, the level of physical activity has fallen sharply and we are witnessing very rapid spread of diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, osteoporosis, mental disorders, etc. in our society. Following the message 'prevention is better than cure' authorities in charge have to take prompt actions in order to prevent the prevalence of these diseases.
As mentioned above, inactivity is the source of all diseases. Since the entire family of physical education is responsible for the creation of mobility with specialized principles, providing operational solutions to solve these problems is one of the most important parts which require much attention.
Organizations related to Physical Education that are in charge of implementing operational projects have to take effective steps to improve the quality of life in the society, among which the National Institute of Physical Education and Sports Science has the top priority because this organization has both facilities and expertise at its disposal.
