Obesity perspectives

Over 650 million people live with obesity around the world, more than twice the number compared to just 20 years ago. Despite this dramatic increase, society still does not have a true understanding of what it means to live with obesity. Because behind statistics there are real people whose trajectories in life have been changed, and whose partners, children and families are also affected by obesity.

In this section we shed light on their stories to help us better understand what it really means to live with obesity, and to learn from the experiences of those who support them.
