OBesity Training And INformation Services in Europe phase 2 [OBTAINS-E2] [824194] - Operating Grant
Project abstract

The proposal continues the programme of work to reduce the burden of obesity in society, through improved medical services, better information on trends and causes, and strengthened policies for obesity prevention. To achieve this we will promote high standards of training for European health professionals treating people with obesity, using online courses and face-to-face training schools. We will strengthen the provision of information on the trends in obesity prevalence and the causes and impacts of obesity, including disparities in health and health determinants, by providing country reports, interactive maps and down-loadable graphics. Lastly, we will develop a European Obesity Observatory to include a pan-European data-base on prevention activities, a series of Policy Briefing papers, and a Policy Repository providing tools and services for policy makers.
