Weight Issues Network (WIN) is an Australian network formed by those whose lives are affected by overweight or obesity, and are committed to breaking weight stigma. The purpose of WIN is:
“To provide a strong voice and support for people living with and affected by obesity.”
WIN is raising awareness around the challenges and needs for additional support, providing evidence-based education on obesity, fighting weight stigma, bias and discrimination; while creating a community of support, allowing people to share their experiences.
WIN is striving to shift the national debate around overweight and obesity towards something that is more informed and compassionate to those affected. If you would like to know more about the good work that WIN does, you can visit their website.
WIN recently released their 2020 Report – The Personal Costs of Weight Issues in Australia. If you would like to read the report, you can view or download it below.
Becoming a member of WIN is free and actively encouraged. If you would like to join the network click here.
