Message from Jacques Rogge

The 11th edition of the World Sport for AII Congress will bring together experts from across the world to debate a major theme: «Physical activity: benefits and challenges».Organised for the first time in Havana (Cuba), from 31 October to 3 November 2006, and placed under the patronage of the International Olympic Committee, in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO) and the General Association of International Sports Federations (GAISF), this Congress will assess the progress made in implementing policies and measures for Sport for All.I should like to congratulate the Cuba National Olympic Committee for its great contribution to the organization of this Congress, which reminds us that sport is more than ever part of social development and that physical activity is essential to guarantee a healthy body and mind.It is thanks to such a congress that the Olympic and sports Movement, in close cooperation with governmental and non-governmental organizations dealing with physical activity and sport, will be able to achieve our common goal for this third millennium: to place sport at the service of the harmonious development of the human being.
