Led by the Global Obesity Centre and the Obesity Policy Coalition, thirty-five leading community, public health, medical and academic groups have united for the first time to call for urgent Federal Government action to address Australia’s serious obesity problem.

Sixty-three per cent of Australian adults and 27 per cent of our children are overweight or obese, but there’s still no national strategy to tackle our obesity problem. In the ground-breaking new action plan, Tipping the Scales, the agencies identify eight practical actions to improve wellbeing, bring vital benefits to the economy and set Australians up for a healthier future.
