About this talk Obesity, metabolic disorders and the resulting non-communicable diseases such as cancer, diabetes and heart disease, are a huge, global public health challenge. In the UK, the estimated annual cost of obesity to the NHS is £6.5 billion and wider society £58 billion. How do we use evidence in primary prevention policy? What are the opportunities for enhancing the relationship between evidence and policy?
