WHO: Global status report on physical activity 2022

WHO recently published its first ever Global status report on physical activity, which tracks worldwide progress against the aims set out in its GAPPA. Drawing on data from 194 countries and published in October 2022, the WHO report reveals that between 2020 and 2030 the cost of preventable non-communicable disease (NCD) attributed to physical inactivity will be nearly USD 300 billion (USD 27 billion a year).


This Global status report on physical activity is WHO’s first dedicated global assessment of global progress on country implementation of policy recommendations of the Global Action Plan on Physical Activity (GAPPA) 2018-2030. It also presents an estimate of the cost to health systems of not taking action to improve physical activity levels and reinforces the urgency to position physical activity as a shared, whole-of-government priority, and to strengthen coordination and partnerships to promote physical activity.
