Promoting physical activity for older people: a toolkit for action

This toolkit from the World Health organization (WHO) draws on the best available evidence and practice to demonstrate the importance of ensuring that environments and settings support older people to be active, and that they provide physical activity services and programmes tailored to the needs, preferences and goals of all older people. It provides guidance on the key approaches to promote and enable older people to be physically active, regardless of who they are, where they live, or their intrinsic capacities, or whether they live with chronic health conditions.

This toolkit is designed to support all countries at national and subnational levels (particularly low- and middleincome countries with limited resources), and includes country case studies and practical tools from around the world.
