The Global Observatory for Physical Activity is a global organization consisting of physical activity researchers, epidemiologists, public health policy makers and practitioners, producing and analyzing reliable, high quality and current global data, information and knowledge on the topic of physical activity and health. The Observatory encourages and facilitates collection and dissemination of national-level information about physical activityrelated behaviors, plans, policies, and research with the ultimate goal of turning physical activity information into meaningful public health action and policy. There is no other observatory dedicated to monitoring physical activity globally. The Observatory is a council of the International Society for Physical Activity and Health (ISPAH).
