Community forums to inform a national obesity strategy

 About the consultation process


The Australian and state and territory governments through the COAG Health Council have agreed to develop a national obesity strategy. 


Public consultation provides an opportunity for all Australians to have their say about what should be included in a national obesity strategy. The strategy focuses on what government will do and how government can work with communities, non-government organisations and industry to create environments that support a healthy weight and empower individuals and communities.


A consultation paper, which includes a range of ideas and options that might be included in a national obesity strategy is available on the Commonwealth Department of Health consultation hub. You can also have your say via an online survey.
