Our Policy Priorities

Our key messages on prevention, treatment and care of obesity are arranged around a number of policy areas.

We advocate with governments, international and national health bodies, civil society organisations, and other key stakeholders around the world to change the narrative around obesity and achieve the political recognition which it deserves.

We do this by advising governments, responding to consultations, publishing position statements, convening high-level meetings of experts, forming coalitions and helping others advocate and spread the word where they are.

We have designated five key policy priorities. Read more about them by clicking the links below.

During the summit, held to coincide with World Obesity Day 2018, we spoke to patients about their experiences living with both overweight and obesity. Below, you can find a collection of some of our patients who were happy to make their voices heard on the subject of living with obesity and overweight, and emphasize just why we need to end weight stigma.
