A draft global action to promote physical activity

Insufficient physical activity is one of the leading risk factors for death worldwide. Adults who do not meet the global guidelines on physical activity have a higher risk of all-cause mortality compared with those who do. Within this context, the World Health Organization planned to develop a draft global action plan (2018-2030) to promote physical activity worldwide.

Member States, UN organizations and non-State actors are invited to submit their comments through an open web-based consultation on a first draft from 1 August 2017 to 22 September 2017. All contributions received will be published on this website and they will be presented for consideration by Member States at the142nd Executive Board session in January 2018.
