ISCA welcomes proposal for WHO global physical activity action plan
ISCA welcomes the World Health Organisation Executive Board’s endorsement of developing a global WHO action plan on revitalising physical activity for health. ISCA President, Mogens Kirkeby, says ISCA is prepared to take an active role in its development:
“There is a need for a very specific focus on physical activity so we can cash in all the benefits for citizens and societies. Even though it is well documented that physical activity is a “wonder drug” which is both effective and cheap, it still has a tendency to be neglected when actions of health promotion are prioritised. We are looking forward to the development of a gobal action plan on physical activity and are happy to contribute”.
