ABOUT THE OHA

The goal of the Obesity Health Alliance is to prevent obesity-related ill-health by addressing the influences that lead to excess bodyweight throughout life.

We bring together a range of leading organisations with expertise in tackling overweight and obesity.

The Obesity Health Alliance was formed in 2015. We support policy-making to tackle the social, economic and cultural factors that contribute to obesity and the inequalities in health caused by obesity.

We do this by:

  • Sharing insight and expertise among members
  • Developing and advocating evidence-based policy recommendations
  • Influencing decision makers and the media

The Obesity Health Alliance is led by a Steering Group of representatives from ten of our member organisations.
