Obesity - Working with local communities (PH 42)

Creator:

National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE)

Subject Keywords: Obesity prevention
Topic: Obesity
Obesity
Type: Guideline
Region: United Kingdom
Description:

This guidance aims to support effective, sustainable and community-wide action to prevent obesity. It sets out how local communities, with support from local organisations and networks, can achieve this.

For the purpose of this guidance, ‘local community’ refers to a group of people from the same geographic location that is not necessarily related to any official, administrative boundary.

This guidance focuses on the prevention of overweight and obesity. The recommendations may also help people who are already overweight or obese to lose weight, or to prevent them from gaining further weight. It does not cover clinical management for people who are already overweight or obese.

This guidance is for local policy makers, commissioners, managers, practitioners and other professionals working in local authorities, the NHS and the wider public, private, voluntary and community sectors.

The recommendations will also be of interest to academic organisations involved in designing and evaluating community-wide interventions to prevent and manage obesity, as well as members of the public.
