Pakistan as a developing country is struggling in many domains due to which the health system has suffered a lot. As a result of that Pakistan has been ranked on the 122 out of 190 countries in a World Health Organization performance report.
With obesity being a major health issue that has attracted concern only in the past few years, urbanization and an unhealthy, energy-dense diet (the high presence of oil and fats in Pakistani cooking), as well as changing lifestyles, are among the root causes contributing to obesity in the country.
According to Forbes, Pakistan is ranked 165 (out of 194 countries) in terms of its overweight population, with 22.2% of individuals over the age of 15
crossing the threshold of obesity. Women also naturally have higher rates of obesity as compared to men. Pakistan also has the highest percentage of people with diabetes in South Asia.
