Physical inactivity: a global public health problem  

Sedentary life

At least 60% of the world's population does not perform the physical activity necessary to obtain health benefits. This is due in part to insufficient participation in physical activity during leisure time and to an increase in sedentary behavior during work and domestic activities. Increased use of "passive" means of transportation has also reduced physical activity.

Causes of Physical Inactivity

Urbanization has created several environmental factors that discourage physical activity:

·         Overpopulation.
·         Increase in poverty.
·         Increased criminality.
·         High traffic density.
·         Poor air quality.
·         Lack of parks, sidewalks and
 sports and recreational facilities.

Consequently, noncommunicable diseases associated with physical inactivity are the major public health problem in most countries of the world. Effective public health measures are urgently needed to improve the physical activity of all populations.

Populations at risk

The global evolution of physical activity is particularly worrying in some high-risk populations: young people, women and older adults.
