Consultations to inform Queensland’s response to the National Obesity Strategy 2022-2032

Three people stand around a poster with the text 1a. Access to healthy and sustainable food. They are writing on sticky notes and adding sticky notes and dots to the poster.

When the National Obesity Strategy was released in 2022, the Queensland Government was ready to consider how its priorities could be implemented to support the health of Queenslanders.

We supported Health and Wellbeing Queensland to engage across government and health and community sectors to develop action areas and priorities for Queensland’s response through a Queensland Obesity Prevention Strategy.

The project included a targeted data review of consultation insights that informed the National Obesity Strategy, pulling out what Queenslanders had to say. These insights helped guide a series of engagement activity with just under 1000 Queenslanders across:

  • 7 x workshops with government, community and health sectors  
  • A survey for stakeholders and community members  
  • A webinar

During these activities, we facilitated activities and discussions to explore key themes and prioritise actions for a Queensland strategy.

We delivered a comprehensive report of the consultations.

Insights and updates on the strategy can be found on the Health and Wellbeing Queensland website.
