Nutrition Intervention to Prevent Obesity (NIPO)

The workshop aims to consolidate and expand on causes of obesity in pre/adolescent to ensure participants have a solid scientific grasp of physiological contexts within which nutritional components play a key role.

Due to its long-term adverse effects, the prevention and management of obesity has received the full WHO recognition. WHO has encouraged many countries to prioritise strategies to tackle the obsogenic environment of this “Pandemic Crisis".


This workshop brings together an interdisciplinary group of professionals and policy makers working in the field of childhood and adolescent obesity. The workshop will focus on nutrition intervention strategy - from model to practice. This theme recognises that obesity is a complex problem requiring a complex solution-oriented approach to its prevention and management. Specifically, the workshop will showcase example of the best and promising practice across multiple settings. From regional level policies to school and community level interventions, and through practice-based management programs targeting multiple behaviours that are associated with obesity, the workshop seeks to promote a solution-oriented approach to obesity prevention and management.


The International Forum for Public Health – IFPH is organising two-day training workshop Nutrition Intervention to Prevent Obesity – [NIPO].


Workshop Specific Aims:

The workshop aims to consolidate and expand on causes of obesity in pre/adolescent to ensure participants have a solid scientific grasp of physiological contexts within which nutritional components play a key role. Standards used to screen and monitor obesity in adolescent are introduced and nutritional strategies to enhance healthy lifestyle are explained. The workshop will also explore the evidence-base related to the relationship between diet and health and the role that nutritional interventions can have in promoting health and treating disease both in individuals and populations.


Learning objectives

By the end of this workshop the participants should be able:

  1. To plan, implement, evaluate and sustain a nutrition intervention strategy to prevent obesity among target group (e.g. pre/adolescent)
  2. To examine how to engage multiple stakeholders in interventions for the prevention and management of obesity
  3. To highlight policy, solution-oriented approaches and promising practice for obesity prevention and management
  4. To provide a forum for networking and collaboration among health professionals, educators, researchers, policy makers, trainees and other stakeholders with an interest in obesity prevention.
