Active Healthy Kids Australia (AHKA) is a collaboration of physical activity researchers from across Australia who share a common interest in increasing the physical activity levels of all young Australians. The vehicle we use to help increase awareness and drive this need for change is the Report Card on Physical Activity for Children and Young People.
AHKA advocates for a coordinated national response to the current physical inactivity pandemic. There is no single solution to this problem. In order to see real improvement in physical activity levels we need a united effort across: government, non-government organisations, communities, sporting organisations and groups, schools, teachers, parents, coaches, friends, families, and children themselves. Physical activity needs to be prioritised every day, and it should not be viewed as something we feel like we should do, rather it should be viewed as something we all want and choose to do for fun, enjoyment, and better health and wellbeing.
