WISH Impact on GCC Obesity Epidemic

WISH Impact on GCC Obesity Epidemic

Following its 2015 summit, WISH shared its research on obesity with the Executive Board of the Health Ministers’ Council for GCC States, upon request. The distribution of the documents to such high level policymakers furthers WISH’s impact on healthcare policy in the GCC and beyond. Obesity in the Arabian Gulf is on the rise, making these contributions all the more significant. A WHO World Health Statistics report last year noted that about half of the women in most GCC nations are classed overweight, illustrating the urgency of the situation
