Abstract IntroductionThe participation of men aged 50 and older in interventions to promote health-enhancing physical activity (HEPA) is low. Research shows that gender-sensitized interventions that consider the living and working context (setting-approach) are effective in increasing engagement of men in HEPA. To build up corresponding capacities of local policy makers and professionals, interactive knowledge-to-action (IK2A) approaches are promising. ACTION for men aims to develop capacities for HEPA promotion addressing men 50 plus in two rural communities in Bavaria. MethodsTo enable IK2A processes, co-operative planning groups involving different community stakeholders were established and facilitated in both communities. All meetings were documented using standardized field notes. Conducting a qualitative content analysis of standardized field notes (so far n=15) provided insights into the development of key domains of community capacity building. ResultsResource mobilization worked well in both communities. However, only one community was successful in developing and implementing an innovative HEPA approach for men 50 plus. This seems to be due to both a better development of local leadership and an improved relationship with external agents.ConclusionCooperative planning groups are potentially effective in building up capacities in rural communities with regard to the development and implementation of HEPA promotion interventions addressing men 50 plus. However, crucial key domains need to be considered. External funding details ACTION for men is part of the Capital4Health consortium funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
