Access to care for people living with obesity
Obesity is a global health emergency. There are currently over 650 million  people living with obesity worldwide, over 13 percent  of the global population, 20 percent  of the European population and 25 per cent  of the German population.
To better support people living with obesity, we joined forces with Novo Nordisk. Together, we designed a health journey that enables people living with obesity to address weight loss, mental health, obesity sigmas and empowers people with obesity to better understand their condition and take better healthcare decisions. The obesity health journey was implemented in Germany early 2021 and aims to expand across Europe. The DocMorris adipositas care hub, a central piece of the collaboration, links people with obesity to tailored treatment options such as medication, digital therapeutics and surgery, facilitating access to specialized doctors online via TeleClinic and offline healthcare professionals via adipositas-specialisten.de, a tool to locate healthcare practitioners with obesity expertise in Germany.
