Overweight & Obesity
Healthy Weight Australia: A National Obesity Strategy, was prepared by the Australasian Society for the Study of Obesity (ASSO) in 1995. The overall goal or aim of the strategy is to increase the proportion of the Australian population who maintain a healthy weight throughout their lives.
This national strategic plan focuses on maintaining a healthy weight throughout life. Although nearly all those whose weight falls outside the healthy weight range are considered overweight or obese, this strategy also acknowledges that for some, underweight may be a serious problem.
The Healthy Weight Australia strategy comprises four main parts. The first two parts focus on understanding the problem of overweight and obesity in Australia; the other two parts focus on addressing the problem.
