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.
