Thanks to BJSM editorial board member Daniel Friedman (@DDFriedman), who has also served as in intern at the World Health Organization, for hosting this podcast. The BJSM’s guest is Professor Fiona Bull, MBE – Program Manager of WHO Prevention of Noncommunicable Diseases Management Team, Geneva, Switzerland. @fiona_bull The conversation gives the listener a 20-minute gem that covers the following points What is the global action plan? How was it developed? Why was this needed? How does it differ from the 7 investments? What is the overall goal? (15% reduction in physical inactivity by 2030) What can the BJSM community and how can we follow progress?
