Find key evidence on obesity trends, impacts, prevention & treatment in Australia

The Obesity Evidence Hub’s objective is to identify, analyse and synthesise the evidence on obesity. The information on the Obesity Evidence Hub draws on the best available evidence. Including academic literature, systematic reviews and meta-analyses where available. The most current data on rates of overweight and obesity and diet and exercise has been sourced from government agencies including the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare and the Australian Bureau of Statistics.

The Obesity Evidence Hub is a joint project between the Cancer Council Victoria, the Bupa Health Foundation and the Obesity Policy Coalition. It is a foundational component to the Obesity Collective, a modern movement to drive action on important obesity initiatives in Australia.
