European policy impacting obesity is a priority of EASO. We run an annual Europe-wide campaign European Obesity Day, which includes a high level policy conference. The KOLs in our Public Health Task Force, Obesity Management Task Force and Childhood Obesity Task Force issue position papers and guidance on key issues in policy that impact obesity.

EASO sees obesity as a major public health and social challenge and is committed to undertaking policy development to address the challenge of unhealthy excess weight in Europe.

We have a role in European policy via our Policy Statements, EU Platform Commitments and the award-winning annual EASO European Obesity Day campaign.


It is with great regret that due to the increasing concerns about the spread of covid-19, EASO has taken the decision to postpone its Policy Conference, which was due to have been held at the Renaissance Hotel in Brussels next Wednesday.
