[Comment] Ending childhood obesity: a time for action

On Jan 25, 2016, the Commission on Ending Childhood Obesity (ECHO) presented its final report1 to the Director-General of WHO during the 138th session of the WHO Executive Board. The ECHO report is the culmination of a 2-year process that has involved discussions with more than 100 countries, non-state actor hearings, and online consultations. The process was supported by extensive reports from two expert working groups on science and evidence and on implementation, monitoring, and accountability.
