Sponsorship and Collaborative Partnerships
ASO seeks to work in collaboration with any organisation who shares is aims to develop an understanding of obesity through the pursuit of excellence in research and education, the facilitation of contact between individuals and organisations, and the promotion of action to prevent and treat obesity. This includes commercial companies and government as well as other professional societies/charities. Our primary consideration in any collaboration is ensuring that our independence is not in any way compromised and we are free to act in the best interests of our members and what we consider to be the best interests of patients and public.
Written agreements are in place for all commercial membership programmes and other funding. The sources of funding are declared and made transparent on the ASO website and on relevant materials.
