European Obesity Day

Obesity is a pressing public health issue that requires more decisive action on prevention and more consistent action on treatment. It has a significant inequalities dimension and is caused by a complex web of societal and biological factors.

Obesity Action Scotland recognises that to be successful at tackling obesity we must take a population health approach, in the same way as public health has worked to tackle other threats to health such as tobacco and alcohol. Not only must people be encouraged to stay a healthy weight and lose weight where necessary, but society and government must also create the right environmental conditions to enable the maintenance of healthy weight.
