Global Observatory for Physical Activity - GoPA!

The Global Observatory for Physical Activity is a joint initiative of ISPAH and the Lancet Physical Activity Series Working Group. The Observatory is developing Country Cards on the status of physical activity for each country of the world. The country cards are a single slide infographic containing core indicators related to physical activity research, surveillance and policy. The focus of the country cards is the adult population, and thus this initiative complements the Active Healthy Kids Global Alliance Report Card for children.
