Peter Bergsten on SVT


Professor Peter Bergsten was interviewed on Swedish national televisions news night program Aktuellt.

The segment was on the success of the overcoming obesity program in Seinäjoki Finland where an multi stakeholder policy and collaboration program has given very positive results with regard to obesity prevalence among children. Peter also commented that there is work underway to start similar programs in Sweden and there already are plans of commitments of municipalities and stakeholders in Sweden to participate in such work. Research is an important factor in this effort as it is vital for the sustainability of such programs to understand what works and how, not only in a socioeconomic view but also with biology. An important factor is also to research which groups of individuals are not responsive to such programs and why.
