Obesity is prevalent internationally and at all ages and lifestages. While the relationship between obesity, poor dietary patterns and sub-optimal leveal of physical activity with the risk of morbidity and mortality due to chronic conditions has been examined extensively, the relationship with healthcare usage and costs is less studied. This special issue of Healthcare “The burden of obesity in health care” welcomes submission of previously unpublished manuscripts from original work on all the above aspects.
