We believe the most effective way to prevent a high prevalence of obesity throughout the life course is to avoid its development in children and promote healthy weight maintenance during adolescence and young adulthood.
The main concept behind Obelisk, is dedicated to understanding, predicting, and preventing obesity in children and providing precision medicine for those affected.
The 4P’s approach of Obelisk involves active participation from all stakeholders including families, scientific and medical communities, daycare centres, schools, policymakers, and industry, to drive social innovation and achieve successful outcomes.
Obelisk 4P's Approach
With the help of predictive tools and targeted prevention strategies developed by Obelisk, patients and clinicians can work together to make informed decisions on the most suitable interventions for controlling the progression of obesity in children. This empowers patients to take control of their health and well-being.
By following the Obelisk evidence-based guidelines, policymakers, national and local authorities, nurseries, schools, and sports centres can create more efficient prevention campaigns to combat childhood overweight and obesity.
