This PhD investigat ed the prevalence of physical activity and key factors determining the participation in a nationally representative sample of 16,843 Thai children aged 6-17 years from 333 schools in 9 regions across Thailand. A cross secttonal study design using three instruments were applied. The results revealed that only 23% of Thai children met global recommendations on physical acltvtly and that individual factors, as well as family and peer support, rather than environmental factors, were the strongest correlates of the participation. These findings contribute to butlding knowledge on physical acltvtty in Thai children and can inform national policies and practices.
