Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

The World Bank estimates that roughly 1.6 billion people?nearly one out of every four people on the planet?do not have regular access to electricity. This form of energy poverty disproportionately afflicts people living in developing countries. For example, in sub-Saharan Africa excluding South Africa, 75 percent of households, some 550 million people, have no access to network electricity. In South Asia, 700 million are similarly not connected to the electricity grid.
