Physical inactivity has been identified by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a leading risk factor for mortality causing an estimated 3.2 million deaths globally. In a positive move to decrease physical inactivity, WHO Member States, together with the World Heart Federation, aim to reduce insufficient physical activity by 10% by 2025 and achieve a 15% relative reduction in the global prevalence of physical inactivity in adults and adolescents by 2030.
To support the achievement of this ambitious WHO action plan, a free Open Online Course will continue the global effort to improve and increase physical activity knowledge and skills among health care professions.
