Igniting and Inspiring Global Change for People with Obesity.
As a unified voice, GOPA is proud to join together obesity patient organizations from around the world to create change in obesity on a global level.
Why the Global Obesity Patient Alliance Exists
The impact of obesity spans the entire globe, yet our voices aren’t yet heard loud enough for all to hear. Here are the important facts: Obesity is a Chronic Disease; Weight Bias/Stigma still exists and needs to end, and Negative Perceptions of people with obesity must change.
Patient Voices United
GOPA and its member organizations proudly joined together as one patient voice on World Obesity Day - March 4, 2021. “We are people living with obesity,” and It’s Time that EveryBODY with obesity is heard.
