WSCC Vision for Healthy Weight
  • The aim of this strategy is to improve the health of the people of West Sussex by preventing unhealthy weight and improving the management provided for children and adults
  • Developing a County where having a healthy weight is increasingly the norm and easier to achieve and maintain
  • The main focus will be to reduction the prevalence of excess weight (overweight and obesity); however the strategy and action plan will be mindful of those who are underweight

The approach used is based on normalising healthy weight across the life course, primarily looking at each age group within the population to identify and address causes, influences, and inform prevention initiatives and interventions.

  • Reflecting Marmot’s life course framework the seven life course age groups have been identified
