Last week at the European Congress on Obesity in Sofia, Bulgaria, C3 Collaborating for Health launched its latest publication, with the European Association for the Study of Obesity, entitled Obesity: Perception and Policy – Multi-country Review and Survey of Policymakers 2014.

Policymakers will be faced with the financial consequences of obesity – and they are well placed to take action to control the epidemic and its health repercussions. However, are their perceptions of obesity and obesity policy accurate? Do they appreciate the extent of the epidemic, the drivers of obesity, and the tools and actions that need to be taken to make a difference?
