The ECO2018 Congress on Obesity was held from 23rd to 26th of May 2018 in Vienna, Austria.
Professor Kevin P. Balanda from the IPH contributed a session to the JANPA Workshop. The brief session looked at mobilising data and research to estimate the lifetime costs of childhood obesity using the JANPA costing model. It outlined the data and research required, described some of the challenges and gave tips for overcoming these challenges. It ended with a brief overview of the opportunities that exist for countries in conducting such study in their country.
