We are launching a new World Obesity Day on March 4, 2020, to call for a global response to this critical challenge. Obesity is now a global crisis affecting more than 2 billion people, but is poorly understood. The complexity of the disease, the challenge of developing sustainable solutions and the burden of stigma means we need to work together to address the challenge.
The new World Obesity Day will include global recognition as well as regional and national campaigns and local activities and events. Organisations from across the world will acknowledge and celebrate our efforts on 4 March 2020.
