Projektleitung und Koordination für Österreich: Assoc.-Prof.in Dr.in PD Kathryn Hoffmann, MPH Projektmitarbeiterin: Mag.a Dr.in Elena Jirovsky
The objective of the study is to provide support to the report from the European Commission to the European Council of Health Ministers on the implementation of the Action Plan on Childhood Obesity 2014-2020. The overarching goal of the Action Plan is to contribute to halting the rise in overweight and obesity in children and young people (0-18 years) by 2020. In this project we will establish an overview of the state of implementation of the Action Plan as well as on relevant related actions on nutrition and physical activity. This will enable EU Member States as well as the European Commission to focus their activities from 2017 to 2020 in those areas, where gaps or lacks in the implementation of the Action Plan might be identified.
