News2021 in review: The Obesity Collective

The Obesity Collective and its member organisations advocated together this year for the Australian National Obesity Strategy to be progressed, which had been on hold for some time due to resources and the public health focus shifting to the COVID-19 response.

We are happy to say that the strategy is moving forward and due to be launched next year. Our Collective feedback to a recent strategy draft and consultation process highlighted the need for a paradigm shift, including: raised awareness across society on the science of obesity; a whole-of-health approach for obesity prevention and treatment; the development of new clinical guidelines, and resourcing commitments to achieve tangible action and accountability.
