The WA Healthy Weight Action Plan 2019-2024 (hereafter, the Action Plan) is a joint initiative of WA Health, WA Primary Health Alliance, and Health Consumers' Council to create a roadmap for sustainable changes to support people and families who are at-risk of overweight (those at the high end of the healthy weight body mass index range) and those with overweight and obesity. It is the first step of many to create a coordinated approach across health to tackle the complex causes of overweight and obesity and work with our partners across WA to drive long-term change.
The Action Plan focusses on people at-risk of becoming overweight and those currently with overweight and obesity. It looks to create change in early intervention and management space, while supporting the preventive work currently being undertaken by the WA health sector.
The Action Plan is intended to be a catalyst to support ongoing system-wide change and reorientation of services. A key function of the Action Plan is to enable and maintain innovation and continuous quality improvement in the way the public health system plans, funds and delivers early intervention and weight management services and programs.
