This year, World Obesity and our members will be advocating to governments at WHO’s regional committee meetings.
In our statements, we highlight the evidence on obesity and COVID-19 (collated in our policy dossier), and make the case for why now is such a crucial time to accelerate action on obesity in every region of the world.
