The International Obesity Task Force (IOTF) describes itself "as a research-led think tank and advocacy arm of the International Association for the Study of Obesity."

"The IOTF is working to alert the world to the growing health crisis threatened by soaring levels of obesity. It works with the World Health Organization, other NGOs and stakeholders to address this challenge. The IOTF's mission is to inform the world about the urgency of the problem and to persuade governments that the time to act is now," it states on its website. [1]

In 2002 the IOTF merged with the International Association for the Study of Obesity.
