Physical activity strategy for the WHO European Region 2016–2025

The World Health Organisation launched their physical activity strategy for 2016 - 2025 this week. The strategy focuses on physical activity as a leading factor in health and well-being in the European Region, with particular attention to the burden of non-communicable diseases associated with insufficient activity levels and sedentary behaviour. It aims to cover all forms of physical activity throughout the life-course. Five priority areas are focussed on:

  • Providing leadership and coordination for the promotion of physical activity
  • Supporting the development of children and adolescents
  • Promoting physical activity for all adults as part of daily life, including during transport, leisure time, at the workplace and through the health-care system
  • Promoting physical activity among older people
  • Supporting action through monitoring, surveillance, the provision of tools, enabling platforms, evaluation and research.
