Strategic Framework to Prevent the Harm caused by Obesity, and Improve Diets and Levels of Physical Activity

Consultation opened on 24 November 2023. Closing date 01 March 2024.


A consultation to seek views on the Healthy Futures strategic framework to prevent the harm caused by obesity, and improve diets and levels of physical activity in Northern Ireland.


Consultation description

This consultation seeks views on a range of proposals to enhance health and wellbeing in Northern Ireland by focusing on improving diets, increasing participation in physical activity, addressing the obesogenic environment, and preventing the harm cause by overweight and obesity.

Any new strategy will need to be agreed by Ministers when they are in place, but through this consultation we are keen to hear a wide range of views and ideas to make our new strategy, and proposed interventions, even better targeted at the factors that will make the most positive difference.

You may also be interested in the Department’s consultation on a Proposed Regional Obesity Management Service (ROMS) for Northern Ireland which is running at the same time as this consultation. Details are available on our website.

We are keen to hear from all those who have an interest in obesity, whether that be from lived experience, or due to professional interest.
