Obesity is one of the major problem and the biggest concern in all the countries across the region. Currently, more than one in two adults and nearly one in six children are obese. Obesity is one of the major issues that affects people of all ages and incomes globally. Overweight and obesity is the abnormal or excessive fat accumulation in the body leading to impaired health. There is a higher increasing risk of developing complications and premature mortality with obese population. Obesity plays a major role in increasing cardiovascular diseases among the population across the region.

According the data of National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, in 2015-2016, the obesity rate between the youth of the age group between 2 to 19 is 18.5%.
The overall obesity rate is growing as compared to the previous generation.

In addition, in China, nearly 230 million people out of the country’s 1.3 billion currently suffer from CVDs. Lack of exercise, unhealthy diet, and rapid growth in the obese population is expected to increase the susceptibility of cardiovascular diseases among population in the region.
