6th Congress of the International Society for Physical Activity and Health

16 to 19 November 2016

    It is a pleasure and honour for the Thai Health Promotion Foundation (ThaiHealth) to welcome the 6th biennial congress of the International Society for Physical Activity and Health (ISPAH). Widely known as a major global event in the field of physical activity, we are proud to host the 6th ISPAH International Congress on Physical Activity and Public Health in Bangkok, Thailand from 16 to 19 November 2016.

       The 6th ISPAH Congress marks a key milestone in the history of physical activity advocacy by bringing a global forum to Asia for the first time. The Congress is a major rally point for broad ranges of constituencies – academia, community groups, governments and private sector to discuss current challenges and share innovative ideas and practices to forge new partnerships.

       The Congress theme, “Active Living for All: Active People, Active Place, Active Policy” highlights the importance of integrating physical activity in all policies. The 6th ISPAH will deliberate on wide ranging issues affecting the progress of physical activity and public health in the national, regional and global context.

The scheduling of 6th ISPAH in November 2016 is timely as ASEAN community is taking a stock of progress made to achieve healthy ASEAN lifestyle by 2020. The 6th ISPAH can be a critical opportunity for countries to strengthen collaboration to address new challenges as they redouble their effort to the commitment to promote healthy living for all.

       As an ardent advocate of health promotion in Thailand, ThaiHealth is pleased to share its experience in promoting active and healthy living to global community at the 6th ISPAH Congress. We look forward to welcome you and continuing our strong partnership in advancing physical activity agenda.
