Covid-19 and Obesity

During the Covid-19 pandemic, the OPEN global network remains united in our goal to support improved care for people living with obesity.

Working with our Global partners and network, we are focused on facilitating the sharing of insights on how people with obesity are being impacted by Covid-19, as well as advocating for people with obesity to be prioritised by health systems now, and in the future.
