In the presence of Markos Kyprianou, Commissioner for Health and Consumer protection, the specialised section for employment, social affairs and citizenship has adopted its own-initiative opinion on obesity in Europe. The opinion, drawn up by Ms Madi Sharma, deals with the growing number of obese people and notably children in Europe and proposes concrete measures, for example the “obesity check campaign”. The opinion will be followed by a best practice document. M. Kyprianou congratulated Ms Sharma for her opinion. The Commission counts on the help of the Committee, notably in the obesity platform.
