A new report from World Health Organization (WHO), 𝘎𝘭𝘰𝘣𝘢𝘭 𝘚𝘵𝘢𝘵𝘶𝘴 𝘙𝘦𝘱𝘰𝘳𝘵 𝘰𝘯 𝘗𝘩𝘺𝘴𝘪𝘤𝘢𝘭 𝘈𝘤𝘵𝘪𝘷𝘪𝘵𝘺 2022, has revealed that 𝐩𝐡𝐲𝐬𝐢𝐜𝐚𝐥 𝐢𝐧𝐚𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐯𝐢𝐭𝐲 between 2020 and 2030 will result in almost 500m people developing a preventable, non-communicable disease (NCD), at a cost of US$300bn, if governments do not act urgently.
“We need more countries to scale up implementation of policies to support people to be more active through walking, cycling, sport and other physical activity,” said Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO director general. “The benefits are huge, not only for the physical and mental health of individuals but also for societies, environments and economies. We hope countries and partners will use this report to build more active, healthier and fairer societies for all.”
We believe Physical Activity is a WIN WIN and we are urging all organisations and companies to lead the way and inspiring their community to be active.
