Country Reports

We are also very busy updating our country reports. 

If you are aware of any new country data, policies or interventions that you feel are appropriate for these reports do write to us at obesity@worldobesity.org

These are currently only available for EU countries but we hope to extend this globally in the future. Current reports are available at https://www.worldobesitydata.org/country-profiles/

Data Site

Finally we have had several issues with access to our data site (www.worldobesitydata.org). If you have experienced difficulties please do make us aware obesity@worldobesity.org

We are working to resolve these as soon as possible.
