World Obesity, alongside a coalition of organisations that span the globe, are launching a new World Obesity Day on March 4th 2020 to call for a global response to the critical challenge of obesity worldwide and replacing the traditional date of October 11th.

From the North American-based Obesity Canada, Obesity Action Coalition, Obesity Society and Obesity Medicine Association, to the European Association for the Study of Obesity, Asia Oceania Society for the Study of Obesity, and organisations in Africa, South Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, we have come together to coordinate and align existing obesity days and activities to inspire global change in policy making, attitudes and action.  

Together, we can change the narrative around obesity. 



       WORLD OBESITY DAY        

Childhood Obesity Webinar
On Thursday 19th September at 14:00 BST, we will be hosting a webinar on the management and treatment of obesity in children and youth. 

This webinar will coincide with launch of our new policy dossier on the same subject. Learn more and sign up to our webinar below. 


Healthy Voices Launch
Healthy Voices, a website aimed at young people to engage and talk with them about childhood obesity, will soon be live!

Find out more about our upcoming website, learning from both our STOP and CO-CREATE projects via our website.


Kew Gardens 10k Run
On Saturday 14th September, we will be running the Kew Gardens 10k and fundraising to raise awareness and prevent further progress of the current childhood obesity epidemic. 

In 2016, it was estimated that 41 million children under the age of 5 were living with overweight or obesity. Learn more and help us meet our ambitious goals.


Global Obesity Observatory
This month we have extensive updates to our overweight/obesity prevalence by educational status maps (using 2017 EUROSTAT data). These graphics are available by gender in all EU countries and in all of the 24 official EU languages. 

You can find all this and more on our Global Obesity Observatory. 


World Obesity at the UN General Assembly
Later this month, we will be heading to New York to participate in the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA). Our CEO Johanna Ralston will be attending the first High Level Meeting on Universal Health Coverage (UHC).

In line with our view that obesity is a disease, we are calling for obesity prevention, management and treatment to be prioritised in UHC, in response to the rising rates and lack of progress at global and national levels. UHC is an important goal for obesity advocates and we need to make our voices heard. Ahead of the meeting we are seeking support for our advocacy efforts.

SCOPE Leadership Programme
We are delighted to announce the launch of the new SCOPE Leadership Programme, providing a unique opportunity for health professionals to learn from leading obesity medicine experts in their daily practice. 

The brand new Leadership Programme aims to empower outstanding health professionals to become global leaders in obesity management and treatment.

The programme will focus on the clinical care of patients with obesity, allowing participants to further enhance their skills and provide them with the tools to establish specialised practices in this area. Participants will gain expert knowledge on obesity and related comorbidities how to address their patients’ nutritional, behavioural and/or surgical needs within a multidisciplinary clinic or in their own clinical environment. Applications are now open.
