/ Member Updates

This World Obesity Day we are focusing on stigma.

Weight stigma is one of the last socially acceptable forms of discrimination and we hope to raise awareness about this complexity as part of this year’s campaign.  All of World Obesity Federation member associations and societies are vital to the success of raising awareness of World Obesity Day and over the coming weeks, members will be sent weekly campaign bulletins with updates on:


  • Campaign toolkit

  • Weight Stigma in the Media report

  • Infographics

  • Template press releases

  • Template letter to the media

  • SCOPE modules on Weight Stigma

  • Tweets

  • Opportunities to share stories and experiences on Weight Stigma

We're asking all of our member organisations to issue a press release in their country for World Obesity Day and write to the media highlighting examples of stigmatising images or language.  Toolkits, template letters and press releases are all available in the resources section of the World Obesity Day website (insert link here).


So please get involved and watch out for the campaign updates which will begin the week commencing 3 September 2018.
