This year's focus for World Obesity Day is the need for investment in services that support prevention, early intervention and treatment of obesity and our call to action is ‘Treat Obesity Now and Avoid the Consequences Later’.
This #WorldObesityDay we are calling on all governments, health service providers, insurers and philanthropic organisations to prioritise investment in tackling obesity. This means investment in obesity treatment services, early intervention and prevention.
