THE LIFETIME IMPACTS AND COSTS OF CHILDHOOD OBESITY/OVERWEIGHT IN EUROPE

THE LIFETIME IMPACTS AND COSTS OF CHILDHOOD OBESITY/OVERWEIGHT IN EUROPE.

JANPA WP4 was a very ambitious project. It is the first lifetime costing study of childhood obesity/overweight that developed and applied standard modelling methodology in more than one country (eight European countries).

The modelling methodology for the JANPA costing model is applicable to other childhood risk factors, like childhood obesity/overweight, that have significant short term and long term consequences that are, in part, mediated through a similar adult risk factor, like adult obesity/overweight.

In this document we outline the modelling methodology; describe the data and research requirements; and present the final results for the Republic of Ireland (IRL) and Northern Ireland (NIR).
