Throughout the nineties, and up until 2013, the development of physical education in Albania saw a decline which resulted in obesity and substance abuse among school-going youth.
In 2014, Albanian School Sport Federation implemented a new theoretical and practical platform for physical education professionals, and established for pupils (of age 6-18) enrolled in the pre-university education system.
