Rate & Comment (0)
Abstract Driven by significant and sustained growth in research activity over the last twenty years, sedentary behaviour has risen in prominence as a potential risk factor for chronic disease morbidity and mortality, capturing the attention of policy-makers and mainstream media. Surveillance of sedentary behaviour is required to establish the scale of the burden on public health, to inform priority-setting and public policy, and monitor changes in prevalence over time. In partnership with the Global Observatory for Physical Activity (GoPA), the Sedentary Behaviour Council (SBC) is undertaking a project to collate global data on prevalence, surveillance, research and policy activity as it relates to sedentary behaviour. The GoPA-SBC Sedentary Behaviour Global Monitoring Initiative will be delivered over a number of phases and build upon the GoPA Country Card project methodology. In this presentation, the methods and preliminary results of phase 2 will be presented, which focussed on the collation of sedentary behaviour prevalence/descriptive metrics (Total sitting time, TV viewing) and documentation of surveillance activities across the 6 World Health Organisation regions (Africa, Americas, South-East Asia, Europe, Eastern Mediterranean, Western Pacific). Data will be identified through internet and PubMed keyword searches and by communication with GoPA Country Card contacts in each available country. The protocol for this phase of the project is currently in development, with data collation scheduled to begin in January 2018 and completion due by Autumn 2018. Challenges in data collation and synthesis will be discussed.
