Registration for the AHKGA Global Matrix 5.0 is open!

Active Healthy Kids Global Alliance (AHKGA) is excited to announce that registration for the Global Matrix 5.0 is now open!

The Global Matrix initiative involves the production and subsequent comparison of country-specific Physical Activity Report Cards for children and adolescents, using a harmonized process to assess and assign letter grades to a number of common physical activity indicators. To date, there have been four iterations of the Global Matrix initiative. The fifth iteration, the Global Matrix 5.0, is set to be the largest edition to date and will further contribute to the growing list of positive impacts that the Report Cards and the Global Matrices have had.

The Global Matrix 5.0 will provide participants with the opportunity to identify the current state of physical activity in their country, highlight recent physical activity successes, reveal potential surveillance gaps, contribute to group publications, and advocate for policy and surveillance improvements. Participants will become part of a large international network of researchers/physical activity experts from all over the globe.

Registration details, timelines, benefits of participating, and registration form are available on the Global Matrix 5.0 registration page.
