In progress from 01-08-2008 to 01-03-2011
Project manager: Anders Jacobi
This project was designed as a contribution to the obesity issue on a political level and provides an overview and clarification of the political tasks related to the obesity problem in Denmark. Furthermore the project will contribute to a dialogue in a structured process between politicians and obesity experts. Based on recommendations and proposals for actions dealing with obesity, the project investigates what actions give the best results and it makes suggestions for political action.
