The U.S. National Physical Activity Plan (NPAP) is a comprehensive set of policies, programs, and initiatives that aim to increase physical activity in all segments of the American population.
NPAP is the product of a private/public collaborative. Hundreds of organizations are working together to change our communities in ways that will enable every American to be physically active at a sufficient level.
The Plan aims to create a national culture that supports physically active lifestyles. Its ultimate purpose is to improve health, prevent disease and disability, and enhance quality of life.
NPAP is comprised of recommendations from 9 societal sectors
- Business & Industry
- Health Care
- Mass Media
- Parks, Recreation, Fitness & Sport
- Public Health
- Transportation, Land Use & Community Design
- Volunteer & Nonprofit
In the next version of the plan a ninth sector for Faith-based settings will be added.
