Investments that Work for Physical Activity

This is a complementary document to the Toronto Charter for Physical Activity: A Global Call for Action, launched in May 2010 at the 3rd International Congress for Physical Activity and Health in Canada by GAPA (Global Advocacy for Physical Activity). Investments that Work identifies seven best investments to increase population levels of physical activity which, if applied at sufficient scale will make a significant contribution to reducing the burden of non-communicable diseases and promote population health. In addition, these investments will contribute to improving the quality of life and the environments in which we live.

We encourage you to use these documents to support your work and in advocacy to raise the priority of physical activity and the benefits of investment and increased actions. Both documents are available on the GAPA website www.globalpa.org.uk.

The documents are available in a number of languages at www.globalpa.org.uk where you can also REGISTER YOUR INDIVIDUAL OR ORGANISATION'S SUPPORT
