International physical activity guidelines and policies
The Charter is a tool to help advocate for greater political and social commitment to support health enhancing physical activity for all. Register your support as an individual or organisation.
These recommendations, developed by the WHO focus on primary prevention of NCDs through physical activity at population level. The primary target audience is policy-makers at national level.
This report provides policy makers and other stakeholders with a summary of tried and tested diet and physical activity interventions that aim to reduce the risk of chronic noncommunicable diseases (NCD).
The overall goal of the Global Strategy is to promote and protect health by guiding the development of an enabling environment for sustainable actions at individual, community, national and global levels that, when taken together, will lead to reduced disease and death rates related to unhealthy diet and physical inactivity.
