Summary:
In response to the escalating prevalence of noncommunicable diseases in the Pacific community, a critical first step in the implementation of the WHO Global Strategy on Diet, Physical Activity and Health (DPAS) is the development and dissemination of physical activity guidelines among health professionals, relevant stakeholders and the public. The goals of the guidelines dissemination process are to: 1. increase the proportion of health professionals and relevant stakeholders who are aware of the guidelines;2. lead to strategies that increase the proportion of adults who participate in adequate physical activity for health-enhancing benefits;3. lead to policy and programme development that addresses the broader social, physical and policy environments that might support physical activity in populations and communities.
