Physical inactivity is the 4th leading risk factor for death globally, yet it has been called the Cinderella risk factor due to its poverty of policy attention relative to its importance. The International Society for Physical Activity and Health’s #8Investments support the WHO’s Global Action Plan on Physical Activity’s target for a 15% relative reduction in the global prevalence of physical inactivity in adults and in adolescents by 2030.
