25 June 2024

The World Obesity Federation is pleased to be hosting a SCOPE School in São Paulo, Brazil, this June.

The prevalence of obesity has been steadily increasing worldwide and has emerged as a major public health concern in Brazil over the past two decades. With approximately 20% of Brazil's population affected by obesity, the country faces significant health and economic challenges.

Obesity is recognised as both a disease and a significant risk factor for numerous non-communicable diseases (NCDs), including cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and cancer. The increasing prevalence of obesity highlights the urgent need for coordinated efforts to understand its causes, mitigate its health risks, and develop sustainable collaborative solutions.

Participants will receive 4 points towards SCOPE Certification.

By the end of the School, you will:

  • Be aware of the health consequences of obesity.
  • Understand the challenges associated with long-term weight maintenance and factors influencing sustained outcomes in obesity management.
  • Discuss policy approaches aimed at advancing national obesity strategies in alignment with WHO recommendations.
  • Improve understanding of the importance of a multistakeholder approach, including media, and patients with lived experience.

Target Audience

Primary healthcare professionals working in clinical practice, including primary care medical practitioners, nurses, pharmacists, dietitians, psychologists, surgeons specialising in metabolic and bariatric surgery, researchers, public health professionals, policymakers, media professionals, and journalists.
