The 2022 Atlas, launched on World Obesity Day, presents projections for 2030 including the projected prevalence for obesity and severe obesity in men and women, and revisits 2030 projections for children.

Furthermore, it presents current estimates for some of the consequences of obesity, namely the impact that high BMI has on the number of life-years lost to disease and early death (disease-adjusted life years, DALYs).

The Atlas ends with scorecards for 200 countries globally, presenting the current estimates and projections for obesity, DALYs and preparedness. These serve as a wealth of knowledge, particularly for advocacy directed at policymakers who have the power to make a difference.

These scorecards can be downloaded separately below by selecting from the drop down menu.
