About childhood obesity

The World Health Organization has stated that ”Obesity is one of the greatest public health challenges of the 21st century”. New data shows that all of the body’s organ systems are affected if obesity is developed early in life. This indicates how important early treatment of childhood obesity is for health.


BORIS is one of the world’s largest and oldest registries for treatment of childhood obesity. BORIS was launched in 2005 and has over 40,000 registered individuals. In more than 40 scientific publications, BORIS has contributed to increased knowledge about childhood obesity.
