Our point of view

Tackling obesity must become a priority for a healthy Australia, for the sake of our people, our communities and our economy.

Australia’s growing obesity epidemic

Our latest report.

The alarming new study shows there are 900,000 more people living with obesity today, compared with just 3 years ago. If the current growth rate continues, within 10-years, 4 in 10 Australian adults will be living with obesity.

Facts of the matter

Why we shouldn't blame people.

Obesity is not just a lifestyle choice or due to a lack of willpower or self-control. Just blaming individuals and calling for greater personal responsibility will not work and has not worked in the past.
