About the work of the Commission
Role of the Commission
The Commission has been tasked with producing a report specifying which approaches and combinations of interventions are likely to be most effective in tackling childhood and adolescent obesity in different contexts around the world. The Commission will deliver its report to the WHO Director-General so that she can convey its recommendations to the World Health Assembly.
The Commission on Ending Childhood Obesity is being co-chaired by Sir Peter David Gluckman, Chief Science Advisor to the Prime Minister of New Zealand, and Dr Sania Nishtar, the founder and President of Heartfile.
