World Obesity Day – Everybody needs to act



TYPE Prevention Centre News

Overweight and obesity are one of the highest contributors to the burden of disease in Australia and our research projects bring together leading researchers and policy makers to support innovation in prevention.

These collaborations have so far produced 50 publications and 30 resources.

We welcome the release of the National Obesity Strategy 2022–2032 acknowledging the value of prevention and the need for greater investment in obesity prevention.
