The World Obesity Federation announced a new feature of its Global Obesity Observatory, “Presentation Maps”!

There are downloadable maps available with survey-based prevalence data, obesity-related drivers & comorbidities, comparable estimated prevalence data, and more!

Moreover, the platform includes a few publications which underlines how:

  • Obesity is a major risk factor for each of the three major NCDs responsible for the majority of the premature deaths – cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer
  • the prolonged duration of obesity increases the risk of NCDs, including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, liver disease and certain cancers, needing more extensive and costly interventions
