The Association for the Study of Obesity on the Island of Ireland (ASOI) is the Irish representative body at the European Association for the Study of Obesity and the World Obesity Federation. ASOI aims to develop an understanding of obesity through the pursuit of excellence in research and education, the facilitation of contact between individuals and organisations, and the promotion of action to prevent and treat obesity across the island of Ireland.
In 2022 ASOI published the National Obesity Clinical Practice Guideline for Management of Adults with Overweight and Obesity, in collaboration with the Irish Coalition of People Living with Obesity and the HSE Obesity National Clinical Programme, adapted from the Obesity Canada Clinical Practice Guideline - https://asoi.info/guidelines/
In May 2023 ASOI co-hosted with the European Association for the Study of Obesity, the 30th European Congress on Obesity in Dublin.
