ADULTS ADVISED TO GET PHYSICALLY ACTIVE

Maseru, June 30 — Nearly 31 percent of adults worldwide and approximately 1.8 billion people, did not meet the recommended levels of physical activity in 2022 with which the findings point out that there is a worrying trend of physical inactivity among youth and adults.

This is according to the study that was undertaken by researchers from the World Health Organization (WHO) together with academic colleagues and published in The Lancet Global Health journal.

According to WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, physical activity highlights a lost opportunity to reduce cancer and heart disease and improve mental health and well-being through increased physical activity.

He indicated that collective efforts based on partnerships between government and nongovernmental stakeholders and increased investments in innovative approaches will be needed to reach the least active people and to reduce inequalities in access to measures promoting and improving physical activity.
