Physical Activity 2021 - The Lancet

Ahead of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics, The Lancet launches its third Series on physical activity, which extends our knowledge base from previous Series’ (2012 and 2016) on the importance of regular physical activity and sport to our health and wellbeing. In the past decade, not enough progress has been made to improve physical activity worldwide, with adolescents and people living with disabilities (PLWD) among the least likely populations to have the support needed to meet WHO’s physical activity guidelines.
