World Obesity Day

World Obesity Day

World Obesity Day is marked globally on 4 March. World Obesity Day (WOD) was launched in 2015 as an initiative of the World Obesity Federation to stimulate and support practical solutions on a broader, global basis to help people achieve and maintain a healthy weight, and to reverse the obesity crisis.

World obesity day encourages practical solutions to help people achieve and maintain a healthy weight, undertake proper treatment, and reverse the obesity crisis.

The mission of World Obesity Day is to

  • Increase awareness
  • Encourage advocacy
  • Improve policies
  • Share experiences

Obesity is defined by the World Health Organisation as ‘abnormal or excessive fat accumulation that presents a risk to health’. It is most commonly measured by BMI, though there are other methods such as waist and height rations, that taken with BMI, can be more accurate.
