Today on September 14 2022, the World Health Organisation held a 'Tackling Childhood Overweight and Obesity in the WHO European Region' parallel session at #RC72TLV.
This parallel session showcased best practices in obesity policy action from several Member States, and provided Member States with the opportunity to express interest and share areas for priority action to halt the rise in childhood obesity.
The session included speakers from NGOs and a person living with obesity.
We were honoured to have patient voices delivered at the session with a strong statement from our president Solveig Sigurdardottir.
