The Childhood Obesity National Support Team (CONST), Strategic High Impact Changes document, captures the learning and evidence gathered from the CONST’s 44 visits to local health economies across the country. It translates this learning into what the CONST believe could make the greatest impact in addressing obesity in a local area.

Identifying four key areas for implementation, the document provides researched examples and references evidencing the potential impact of the suggested interventions.
