Abstract: This publication was prepared by WHO Regional Office for the Eastern Mediterranean as part of its efforts to address risk factors linked to noncommunicable diseases and, in particular, physical inactivity. Addressing physical inactivity requires action on behaviour change through wareness-raising and skills development, as well as action on social and built environments in order to give people the means to be active at all ages. This publication is intended to support decision-makers in their quest for improved population and community health and development. It also provides a useful tool for advocates of physical activity, prevention and control of noncommunicable diseases and community development. It aims to provide evidence-based information on the health risks of physical inactivity and to suggest solutions that can be adopted by Member States
