Eastern Mediterranean Physical Activity Network

Background The Eastern Mediterranean Physical Activity network (EMPAN) was established in January 2014 to promote physical activity among the general public in the Eastern Mediterranean Region. It is hosted by Kuwait University’s Health Science Centre and collaborates closely with the WHO Regional Office, GlobalPANet and the International Society of Physical Activity and Health.

The network’s activities are based on global recommendations on physical activity for health and the Political Declaration of the UN High-level Meeting on Non-Communicable Prevention and Control, 2011, which renewed the call on countries to take actions to reduce physical inactivity.
