The SMART India initiative is an extension of the Canadian SMART Study, which uses use of innovative, smartphone-based methods to understand the relationship between upstream policies and physical activity. The initial phase of this initiative focuses exclusively on children and youth, and the data obtained will fill critical evidence gaps on various indicators of active living as identified by the 2016 India Report Card on Physical Activity for Children and Youth. Data obtained through SMART India will also contribute to the development of the 2018 India Report Card on Physical Activity for Children and Youth, which will be part of a Global Report Card comparing evidence across more than 50 countries.
