AB  - This study aims to present information on the surveillance, policy developments, 
      and implementation of physical activity policies in the 28 European Union (EU)
      countries. Data was collected on the implementation of the EU Recommendation on
      health-enhancing physical activity (HEPA) across sectors. In line with the
      monitoring framework proposed in the Recommendation, a questionnaire was designed
      to capture information on 23 physical activity indicators. Of the 27 EU countries
      that responded to the survey, 22 have implemented actions on more than 10
      indicators, four countries have implemented more than 20 indicators, and one
      country has fully addressed and implemented all of the 23 indicators of the
      monitoring framework. The data collected under this HEPA monitoring framework
      provided, for the first time, an overview of the implementation of HEPA-related
      policies and actions at the national level throughout the EU. Areas that need
      more investment are the "Senior Citizens" sector followed by the "Work
      Environment", and the "Environment, Urban Planning, and Public Safety" sectors.
      This information also enabled comparison of the state of play of HEPA policy
      implementation between EU Member States and facilitated the exchange of good
      practices.
