WHO releases toolkit on physical activity for older adults

The World Health Organization recently published a multifaceted toolkit aimed at promoting physical activity for older adults globally. ICAA CEO Colin Milner contributed insights for the toolkit, and while active-aging organizations certainly realize the importance of physical activity and are implementing their own strategies, this publication could add value. It provides evidence-based interventions to "educate and encourage" older adults to engage in physical activity, "engage and support" them, and "enable every day," as well as a deep dive into the key enabling factors that underpin an effective and sustainable approach to providing physical activity opportunities for older people. References and additional resources make the toolkit a "must-have" for active-aging management and staff who want to try new interventions and who make related presentations, especially in a global context.
