What’s Europe Doing About Obesity?

ECO2014 logoAs I head out to attend the 21st European Congress on Obesity in Sophia, Bulgaria, I came across this interactive site that allows interested readers to checkout obesity interventions across Europe.

The atlas of European projects and interventions for obesity prevention in adults is part of the SPOTLIGHT project which udertook a Europe-wide survey to provide an overview of projects and interventions to prevent adult obesity through improving diet and physical activity.

While the atlas may not include every single intervention that is currently happening, it does provide a sense of the scope and range of these activities.

For each project or intervention the atlas considers the Reach, Effectiveness, Adoption, Implementation and Maintenance (RE-AIM) aspects and presents these data where available.

I am sure I will have plenty more to report on based on what I hear at the conference.
