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 nine of our member organisations. We are funded entirely by our members and are hosted by the UK Health Forum.
