The World Health Organisation (WHO) has published plans for the development of a Global Action Plan on Physical Activity to be presented to the World Health Assembly in May 2018.

An overview of the process for developing the global action plan is below.

• May 2017 - A zero draft of the global action plan to include the proposed vision, strategic objectives and set of actions/interventions for all relevant stakeholders.
• June 2017 - A technical advisory group will convene to review the zero draft and the output will be a first draft of the plan.
• July-September 2017 - An open, web-based consultation on the first draft of the plan and, where feasible, regional consultations with member states. The contributions will be used to develop a second draft.
• September 2017 - A consultation with the United Nations agencies in Geneva on the second draft and the contributions will be used to develop a third draft.
• October 2017 - Submission of the third draft to the WHO Department of Government Bodies for processing and translation, in time for consideration by the WHO Executive Board in January 2018
• March 2018 - Member state will consider the draft global action plan
• March 2018 - Submission of the final draft to the WHO Department of Governing Bodies
