Weight Matters – Tackling the Obesity Epidemic in Malaysia Together

The National Health and Morbidity Survey 2019 shows that 1 in 2 adults are either overweight or obese, and 1 in 2 adults have abdominal obesity, which causes various metabolic problems. Prof Dr Rohana Abdul Ghani, Consultant Endocrinologist, and President of the Malaysian Obesity Society, joins us to unpack the multifactorial ecosystem that affects people with obesity, and how to better support them in managing their weight.
