Why Sign Up?

Why sign up to the Global Patient Network?

Patients across the globe have told us how important it is to be able to speak to and hear from other patients. This includes sharing experiences, advice, support or simply being someone another patient feels they can talk to.

That’s why we’ve launched a global patient network – we want to help patients all over the world connect with and support each other.


Why join?

By signing up to the network, you will:

  • hear from other patients about living with obesity
  • have access to the full range of resources on the portal
  • receive our patient newsletter, which will feature latest news, projects and events
  • add your patient group or association to our network
  • share your weight story to help support and inspire others who are living with obesity. 

And don’t just take our word for it. Listen to some of our clinicians and patients explain why being part of a patient network is so important.

What do I need to do?

Joining our network involves completing a simple on-line form and does not require any identifiable personal information. Don’t forget to also share the World Obesity Global Patient Portal with your own circle of family and friends!
