The World Health Organization is organising the second edition of the Walk the Talk: The Health for All Challenge on Sunday 19 May 2019, in Geneva. The Global Health Centre, the IFPMA and other partners will be present at the Villa Barton to promote health and particularly physical activity.
Building on the success of the inaugural event held in 2018, WHO and partners are looking forward to engage the local and international communities in Geneva, and participants at the 72nd World Health Assembly to participate in the event.

The event will be open to people of all ages and abilities and be held over different distances ranging from 3-8 kilometres.
Aims of the event
- To raise awareness and profile of the work and goals of WHO and other global health agencies based in Geneva, highlighting the city’s role as a global health capital in improving global health.
- Engage World Health Assembly delegates, the UN family and the Geneva community in a celebration of healthy lifestyles and ensuring all people can access the health services they need.
