An OPEN Conversation


Obesity perceptions: cultural differences

Season 1, Ep. 2

Perceptions around obesity and those living with obesity can greatly differ amongst countries and regions around the world. Globally, many obesity strategies are shaped by western-centric views of obesity and do not necessarily take into account or address the differences in perceptions caused by cultural understandings of obesity.

In this episode, our guests explore cultural differences and perceptions around obesity. Hosted by Dr Olivia Barata Cavalcanti (WOF) with guests Amerita Ravuvu (NCD Policy Advisor, Fiji) and Ogweno Stephen (CEO, Stowelink, Kenya)
