We Asked

In November and December 2019, we asked for feedback on a proposed framework and ideas to be included in a national obesity strategy.

You Said

Across the country, 604 Australians engaged in community events. In addition, 1,038 short-form and 342 long-form surveys were completed, and 35 stand-alone submissions were received.

Respondents proposed a range of ideas and suggestions for what could be included in a national obesity strategy, with most highly supportive of a comprehensive strategy. The feedback received is appreciated.

We Did

The National Obesity Strategy Working Group is currently considering all contributions and a report summarising key themes and ideas from the consultation will be available on this website when finalised.

Work is continuing on further refining the strategy, which is expected to be considered by COAG Health Council in late 2020. Keep an eye on this website for updates.

Once the consultation report is available, submissions and aggregated responses to the consultation process will also be available upon request to the Chair of the National Obesity Strategy Working Group at NOS_Secretariat@health.qld.gov.au
