If data could speak, it would tell us that 1.1 billion people will be living with obesity by the year 2030 (source3). Rapidly increasing and affecting millions of lives, obesity, is still largely regarded as an individual burden with less than 2% of people in need receiving treatment4.

At Novo Nordisk, we've been changing the lives of people living with diabetes for 100 years. Now, we're determined to change the story for people living with obesity all over the world - pioneering new research, changing the stigma, and giving people access to the treatment they deserve. With first-of-their-kind products already on the market, we're forging a path toward a more hopeful tomorrow for millions. We're ambitious, curious and passionate challengers of the status quo.
