This Obesity Policy and Action Plan is the result of the government’s desire to assist its people to achieve better health and in particular to reduce the levels of overweight and obesity.
It also acknowledges that the solutions are multiple and that every sector has a role in reducing the burden of this condition.
A Healthy Weight for Ireland
The approach taken in developing this policy was based on the Government framework for improved health and wellbeing – Healthy Ireland.
