I would like to call your attention to the document that has just been produced by the Global Alliance for Physical Activity (GAPA), the Advocacy Council of the International Society for Physical Activity and Health (ISPAH). This document is a companion piece to the Toronto Charter for Physical Activity (http://journals.humankinetics.com/jpah-supplements-special-issues/jpah-volume-7-supplement-november/the-toronto-charter-for-physical-activity-a-global-call-for-action-english) and is meant to highlight useful strategies that work for population-level physical activity promotion.

Please disseminate this document widely (together with the Toronto Charter) as we seek to make physical activity a health priority throughout the world.

Yours sincerely, Harold W. (Bill) Kohl, III, Ph.D. President and Founder International Society for Physical Activity and Health (ISPAH)
