We are the 'European Coalition for People living with Obesity' and we work collaboratively across Europe to improve the lives of people who are living with and are affected by the chronic disease of obesity through advocacy, policy and education.
Patient Warning - Counterfeit Obesity Medication
Patients with obesity who are considering medication use for treatment are urged to ensure that they access obesity drugs from a reputable source, such as a licensed pharmacy.
We have launched a new podcast series "Is obesity a gateway to other chronic diseases? - Mental Health".
Building on the theme of "Is obesity a gateway to other chronic diseases?" we have launched a brand new Podcast series focusing on Obesity and Mental Health.
In the first episode of this ECPO Podcast, we discusses Obesity & Mental Health with ECPO Executive Director Vicki Mooney, and ECPO Chair Ken Clare who discuss the link between mental health and obesity.
Living With Obesity Campaign - Voices of Youth in Obesity
Teenagers from across Europe participated in a major international campaign to help them, their parents, caregivers, and healthcare professionals a better understanding of the challenges of living with overweight or obesity.
For this years campaign, we have launched a new Podcast to raise awareness of lack of support and understanding of the challenges of teenagers (adolescents). We have been joined with a number of youths to share their perspective of what it is like to live with Obesity during these vital life moulding years.
While our supporters have contributed to the funding of ECPO activities and campaigns, they have no influence on the choice, content or execution of such activities and campaigns. All ECPO activities and materials are developed and created solely by ECPO as a patient led organisation, as per the terms of our constitution.
