The global prevalence of obesity has nearly tripled since 1975. In addition, in 2016, it was estimated that 41 million children under the age of 5 were living with overweight or obesity.

Today, it is recognised as one of the most important public health problems the world is facing. We are working with our members to halt the rise of obesity, fight vested interests and change the systems that are leading to the current epidemic. Our research shows that there are multiple drivers responsible for the obesity epidemic and require us to focus our efforts on social, economic and food systems transformations.

Following the success of our campaign last year – we raised over £1,700 pounds – World Obesity is once again participating in the Richmond RUNFEST. Interested in joining our team and running with us? Fill out this form!
