The pathway describes four levels in addressing obesity.

It sets out the approach for the prevention and treatment of obesity in Wales, from community-based prevention and early intervention, to bariatric surgery.  

It involves health boards working with a range of groups such as local authorities:

  • level 1 aims to ensure the availability and promotion to the public of opportunities to achieve and help maintain a healthy body weight
  • level 2 provides of a range of services for children, young people and adults who wish to lose weight and have been identified as being at an increased risk of obesity 
  • level 3 aims to ensure availability of services for obese children, young people and adults who have one or more identified needs  
  • level 4 is about providing specialist medical services, such as bariatric surgery.

The 2014 report evaluates progress against the four levels from each of the 7 health boards in Wales.
