Abstract

Over the years, obesity prevention has been a broadly studied subject by both academicians and practitioners.It is one of the most serious public health issue as it can cause numerous chronic health and psycho social problems.Research is needed to suggest a population-based strategy for obesity prevention.In the academic environment, the importance of obesity prevention has triggered various problem solving approaches.A good obesity prevention model, should comprehend and cater all complex and dynamics issues.Hence, the main purpose of this paper is to discuss the qualitative and quantitative approaches on obesity prevention study and to provide an extensive literature review on various recent modelling techniques for obesity prevention.Based on these literature's, the comparison of both quantitative and qualitative approaches are highlighted and the justification on the used of system dynamics technique to solve the population of obesity is discussed.Lastly, a potential framework solution based on system dynamics modelling is proposed.
