Clinical Governance - DIGITAL HEALTH - 'Promoting health, far and wide, in the 21st century'







Developing advice for better public health, and sharing this with all people, are priorities for the World Health Organization.
WHO is demonstrating this is numerous ways.
In 2018, WHO launched Global action plan on physical activity to help make more people active for a healthier world.

WHO is also leading the global agenda on digital health.
At the Seventy-first World Health Assembly, governments recognized the potential of digital technologies to improve public health, promote universal health coverage and advance the Sustainable Development Goals.
In bringing both streams together, WHO is working with Google to share health advice through new and innovative platforms. This is part of WHO's broader ambition to work closely with the digital world to promote and protect the health of all people.
Through the Google Fit app, WHO is looking to reach more people with its recommendations on physical activity, and showing why moving more is good for health.
For improved health, WHO recommends that adults, aged 18-64, should each week do at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity, or 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity, aerobic physical activity, or an equivalent combination of both.
Being physically active - from walking to work to cycling to school - can benefit health in many ways, from preventing hypertension, overweight and obesity, to improving mental health and overall well-being and quality of life.
