WHO Makes Global Physical Activity Recommendations  

The World Health Organization (WHO) has developed global recommendations on physical activity for health, in order to educate policy makers at all levels about the powerful effect of exercise on reducing the instances of chronic disease.

The document, “Global Recommendations on Physical Activity for Health,” offers recommendations for children, adults and seniors, and provides guidance on “the dose-response relationship between the frequency, duration, intensity, type and total amount of physical activity needed for the prevention of non-communicable chronic diseases,” according to WHO.
