12 Percentage of insufficient physical activity comparable country estimates, 2008 Age standardized; by WHO Region and World Bank income group, men and womenSource: Global Status Report on NCDs, WHO, 2001
13 Prevalence of insufficient physical activity Prevalence of insufficient physical activity*, ages 15+ age standardized Males, 2008Source: Global Status Report on NCDs, WHO, 2001
14 Prevalence of insufficient physical activity Prevalence of insufficient physical activity*, ages 15+ age standardized Females, 2008Source: Global Status Report on NCDs, WHO, 2001
15 Being inactive costs the country and the individual New study* just released on the health care costs of physical inactivity in Canadian adults shows that the estimated direct, indirect and total health care costs in 2009 were:Direct: 2.4 billion C$ (3.8% of overall health care costs)Indirect: 4.3 billion C$Total Costs: 6.8 billion C$ (3.7% of overall health care costs)Other studies** have shown that 19% of the coronary artery disease cases in Canadian men are due to physical inactivity* Janssen, 2012, Appl.

17 Global recommendations on PA for Health 5-17 yrs oldAt least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous intensity PA daily.+18 yrs old:At least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic PA spread throughout the week orAt least 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity aerobic PA spread throughout the week or an equivalent combination.65yrs old & above:Should perform PA to enhance balance and prevent falls on 3 or more days/ week.When they cannot do the recommended amounts of PA due to health conditions, they should be as physically active as their abilities and conditions allow.
