World Obesity Federation
World Obesity Federation represents professional members of the scientific, medical and research communities from over 50 regional and national obesity associations. Through our membership we create a global community of organisations dedicated to solving the problems of obesity.
Our mission is to lead and drive global efforts to reduce, prevent and treat obesity. We collate, conduct and disseminate world leading research into obesity, its impact, causes, treatment and prevention. We influence policy of academics, government and business at global, regional and national levels. We bring rigour, consistency and credibility to the field through educational programmes, practical training, publications, conferences and accreditation.
World Obesity offers an internationally recognised online obesity education programme for health professionals (SCOPE), providing evidence-based content developed by leading obesity experts.
