WHO Guidelines on physical activity and sedentary behaviour: Web Annex Evidence profiles – World Health Organization

Overview

The WHO Guidelines on physical activity and sedentary behaviour provide evidence-based public health recommendations for children, adolescents, adults and older adults on the amount of physical activity (frequency, intensity and duration) required to offer significant health benefits and mitigate health risks. For the first time, recommendations are provided on the associations between sedentary behaviour and health outcomes, as well as for subpopulations, such as pregnant and postpartum women, and people living with chronic conditions or disability. The Web Annex details the evidence reviewed to develop the recommendations.
