The 148th session of the WHO Executive Board took place virtually on 18-26 January 2021.
In our capacity as an organisation in official relations with the WHO, we were able to participate and contribute to the recent Executive Board by delivering a number of statements on key agenda items, including on the COVID-19 response, the Political Declaration of the third high-level meeting of the General Assembly on the prevention and control of non-communicable diseases, and social determinants.
The evidence on the close association between COVID-19 and underlying obesity provides a new urgency, and opportunity, for global action. Our window of opportunity to fund and implement actions to ensure better, more resilient, and sustainable health for all is now.
