Netherlands: Covenant on Overweight and Obesity

jessievenegas Jessie Venegas — 2/04/2008

Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport

On January 2005 the ministers of Health, Welfare and Sport and of Education, Culture and Science agreed to a covenant on overweight and obesity. Co-signatories were the food and catering industries, employers, care insurers and sports organisations. This is worth highlighting because this is the first government to pass a law making partnerships with civil institutions a key element to solve the obesity problem.
