New partnership to help prevent childhood overweight and obesity

Novo Nordisk and UNICEF announced a new partnership to help prevent childhood overweight and obesity worldwide with an initial focus on interventions in Latin America and the Caribbean.

The partnership – announced on World Children’s Day, the 30th anniversary of the Child Rights Convention – aims to enhance knowledge among decision-makers on successful policies to prevent childhood overweight and obesity in middle-income countries; build awareness of the impact of overweight and obesity on children and their rights and advocate for the need to make systemic changes to address this growing epidemic and drive and strengthen multi-sector interventions in Latin America and the Caribbean with specific focus on Mexico and Colombia.
