The Obesity Health Alliance is working with a group of academic and policy experts to develop a long-term strategy to help more people be a healthy weight. This strategy will focus on policy change and will cover both prevention and treatment. Read more about the strategy development process here.

It is vital that the strategy reflects the views of people living with overweight and obesity. This voice has been missing from previous strategies – yet those who live with the effects of excess weight everyday are uniquely placed to advise policymakers how obesity impacts their lives and the changes they want to see in society and policy.

We are setting up a panel of people of different ages and backgrounds, with experience of living with overweight and obesity, to feed into the strategy development process. This group will meet online and is chaired by Simon De Negri, Executive Director, Academy of Medical Sciences.
