CNAO (NATIONAL COLLECTIVE OF OBESE ASSOCIATIONS)
Created in 2003, the CNAO regroups associations in Metropolitan France and in French overseas.
The head office, which is located in Paris, aims to:
– transmit information to associations and to the general public
– be the privileged interlocutor of governing bodies
– control the disease progression
– operate in full liaison with the different scientific societies (SOFFCO-MM, AFERO, etc.)
All of this, in order to better understand and to better assist patients, to help public authorities take better decisions with the aim of stopping the disease progression (Ministry of Health, Ministry of National Education, Ministry of Youth and Sports, French National Authority for Health ….) and to empower agri-food industries on the selection of the components of their products and the advertising messages that they convey.
