About BASO

The Belgian Association for the Study of Obesity (BASO) is a member of EASO and was founded in 1988 to promote scientific research on obesity. In 2002 BASO published its first consensus on assessment and treatment of overweight and obesity as a guideline for general practitioners and specialists.

BASO wants to promote interdisciplinary cooperation in the treatment of obesity and encourages health professionals  and scientists of different disciplines to become a member of BASO.

BASO aims to facilitate communication between individuals and organisations and encourages every initiative to counter the obesity epidemic.
