World Obesity Day


World Obesity Day was established in 2015 as an annual campaign with the goal of stimulating and supporting practical actions that will help people achieve and maintain a healthy weight and reverse the global obesity crisis.

Actions you can take:

  • Increase knowledge and understanding of the challenge of obesity, and what can and should be done to overcome it.
  • Encourage member associations and supporters to get involved with advocacy and campaigning on obesity-related issues.
  • Encourage governments to take urgent action to meet their commitment to halt the rise in obesity by 2025.
  • Share national experiences of campaigning to enable the spread of best practices.
