O Dia Mundial da Obesidade é um dia de ação unificada que exige uma resposta coesa e intersectorial à crise da obesidade. Tem lugar a 4 de Março e é convocado pela Federação Mundial da Obesidade, em colaboração com os seus membros globais.
Centenas de indivíduos, organizações e alianças contribuem todos os anos para o Dia Mundial da Obesidade, envolvendo centenas de milhares de pessoas em todo o mundo.
Previous World Obesity Days have encouraged people to recognise the root causes of obesity, increase knowledge of the disease, tackle weight stigma, foreground the voices of people with lived experience and act to improve the world’s understanding, prevention and treatment of obesity.
This year's campaign theme is 'Let's Talk About Obesity And...'. We want to leverage the power of World Obesity Day to start cross-cutting conversations. Looking at health, youth and the world around us to see how we can address obesity together. This World Obesity Day, let's share knowledge, advocate together, and see obesity from a different perspective.
