Promoting Global physical activity – Time for Action – Participate in ISPAH Consultation

More people moving more is central to the world being a healthier place. Unfortunately, evidence is pointing to people everywhere becoming less active than ever before, while the burden of chronic non-communicable diseases rises unabated.

In response, the WHO has launched the draft new Global Action Plan to Promote Physical Activity. You can download the draft Global Action Plan on Physical Activity here

Years of advocacy have culminated in this unique opportunity; the development and comprehensive implementation of a global action plan to promote physical activity will, in many ways, shape the future.
