Types of Members

Here at World Obesity we want to make it as easy as possible for both organisations and inidivduals to become involved in the efforts to ensure that obesity is given the attention it needs.  There are a number of ways you can get involved and different membership types - see below for one which suits you.

If you belong to your National Obesity Organisation it is very likely that you are already a member of World Obesity. View all National Association Member Bodies here to check if your organisation belongs to World Obesity.

If your country does not have a National Association you can join World Obesity as an Individual Member for £15 per year. Also, if your National Association does not currently belong to World Obesity, you may join as an Individual Member.

If you have any questions about joining as an Individual Member or about your association’s affiliation with World Obesity, please contact Fiona Montague at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

World Obesity membership is open to other obesity related organisations. We can now provide our benefits to a wider range of obesity professionals and be more inclusive of the many areas that obesity touches upon, such as nutrition, bariatric surgery, etc.

If you are part of an association or organisation that is not already affiliated with World Obesity and would like to join, please make us awares in the sign up form found at the bottom of the page.

World Obesity is a federation of Obesity Associations from over 50 countries around the world. World Obesity’s strength lies in uniting and connecting professionals from around the world through our international events and the SCOPE online obesity education facility.

Below is a list of our active National Association Members. If you are an active member of your local organisation, then you are a World Obesity Member. If you cannot find an organisation that is local to you then you may be entitled to apply for Individual Membership. 

If a country has a National Obesity Association and they are not currently a World Obesity Member then they can apply to become one by completing an application form. National Membership subscriptions are based on the number of active members an association has and is currently $5 per person payable annually.
