Global Strategy on Diet, Physical Activity and Health

School policy framework

Implementation of the Global Strategy on Diet, Physical Activity and Health

In paragraph 49 of the Global Strategy on Diet, Physical Activity and Health (DPAS) the following recommendation is made to Member States: “School policies and programmes should support the adoption of healthy diets and physical activity.”

To assist Member States in DPAS implementation at the country level, WHO produced the document "School Policy Framework: Implementation of the Global Strategy on Diet, Physical Activity and Health" .

The overall purpose of this tool is to guide policy-makers at national and sub-national levels in the development and implementation of policies that promote healthy eating and physical activity in the school setting through changes in environment, behaviour and education.
