Adolescents Obesity


Addressing obesity for the next generation.

Action teens

ACTION teens


ACTION teens is a global, cross-sectional survey aimed at identifying perceptions, attitudes, behaviours, and barriers to effective obesity care among teens living with obesity, their caregivers, and healthcare professionals. Findings from this groundbreaking study reveal a significant misalignment between these three groups and demonstrate the urgent need for better information and communication across the board. The study also supports a need for improved HCP training, to help treat and prevent obesity in young people.2

A century of breakthroughs in health has shown us that progress is only made possible by driving change. As Novo Nordisk turns 100, we renew our commitment to drive change for a healthy world today, and for generations to come.

We invite you to explore our heritage and the legacy of our founders which have characterised our past and will define our future.
