Is slim a choice?

Doctor Vincent Flink Amble-Naess has written a report for Ephi on obesity and medicines. Flink Amble-Naess notes that effective medical treatment for weight loss is currently available. The question is who should receive it, how should the treatment be financed and how should we really view obesity and overweight?

Watch the seminar from the launch of the report.


The author of the report, Vincent Flink Amble-Naess, will introduce the report. Joining us to discuss the topic are Jenny Vinglid, Secretary General of the National Association HOBS - Health Independent of Size, and Gustaf Drougge, CEO of the think tank Synaps.
