All-island Obesity Action Forum

Established in December 2008 to support the implementation of obesity policies in both Northern Ireland (NI) and Republic of Ireland (ROI), the Forum brings together a wide range of stakeholders from over 31 different organisations. Members come from both the areas of food and physical activity. By facilitating the exchange of best practice and by promoting networking and collaboration, the Forum provides an ideal platform for partnership and cohesive working on the island of Ireland.
