About Obesity Care Week
Obesity Care Week is an annual public awareness event supported by over 100 health organizations and leaders in 80 countries around the world. OCW2022 Champions and Partners stand together to acknowledge obesity as a complex, chronic, recurring disease. Despite extensive research and studies, stigma and misperceptions continue to negatively shape the way people with obesity are treated medically and generally within society. OCW2022 will elevate the discussion on five key issue areas related to obesity: recognition as a disease; combatting weight bias and stigma; expanding access to care; treating obesity with science-based treatments; and expanding proven prevention programs.
