The WHO global action plan on physical activity 2018–2030 aims for a more active world to improve physical and environmental sustainability. Physical activity and rehabilitation are essential for physical and mental wellbeing and the prevention of chronic diseases, leading to premature mortality. Rehabilitation is an essential part of universal health coverage along with the promotion of good health, prevention of disease, treatment, and palliative care. Rehabilitation helps a child, adult or older person to be as independent as possible in everyday activities and enables participation in education, work, recreation, and meaningful life roles, such as taking care of the family. This Special Edition welcomes submissions that report the design, methodological approach, implementation, and impact of physical activity and rehabilitation interventions across all age ranges. We encourage original studies investigating innovative physical activity and rehabilitation programs, as well as studies that explore key considerations when designing and delivering interventions. These may include the use of technology and co-design as well as innovative methodologies leading to lasting change and impact. We hope you will consider submitting to this Special Issue, and we look forward to hearing from you. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with Jack Parker or Mark Faghy if you have queries.
