IWGA brings together sports federations and associations from around the world. Every four years, under the aegis of the association, The World Games is organized, to promote sports representing affiliated federations and physical culture in general. Since its inception, IWGA has expanded its reach from 12 to 37 international sport federations, which has greatly contributed to the enrichment of the program of the next World Games.
IWGA is an association recognized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC). Both organizations cooperate on a regular basis, but they also have the same values​​, related to the promotion of healthy initiatives and physical activity and, consequently, the creation of conditions to improve the quality of social life.

The most recent World Games were held in 2013 in the Colombian city of Cali, while in 2017 it will be Wrocław to host The World Games.
