Our mission is to solve the problems of obesity. We envision a healthy world, free of weight-based discrimination where obesity is recognised as a disease and people have access to tools and resources to live a healthy life. We do so through a network of over 50 obesity associations across the world.
Our work is based on four main pillars:
1. We lead global advocacy for obesity by working closely with the United Nations and the World Health Organization;
2. We convene obesity stakeholders to discuss policy challenges and opportunities both at the regional and global levels;
3. We collect and disseminate knowledge on obesity through our Global Obesity Observatory;
4. We train healthcare practitioners and empower patients to become strong advocates for themselves.
