Book Description

Approximately one in every four people living in countries that are members of the OECD are currently overweight. This epidemic has far-reaching consequences for society as a whole, both for individuals and the economic system. Using microsimulation modeling, OECD Health Policy Studies (PDF) analyzes the burden of obesity and weight problems in 52 countries (including OECD, European Union, and G20 countries), presenting how obesity lowers life expectancy, decreases staff productivity, will increase healthcare costs, and lowers GDP. This analysis was conducted in 52 countries. This research offers an important financial case for increasing investments in programs that support healthy lifestyles and address this growing public health problem on a global basis. This book examines a variety of public policies that, if implemented, have the potential to greatly improve people's health while also being an excellent financial investment for nations.
