Ensemble Prévenons l'ObésitéDes Enfants (EPODE, Together Let’s Prevent Childhood Obesity) is a large-scale capacity building approach designed to prevent childhood obesity. This approach trained local project managers involved in implementing the intervention. Following the initial training, project managers continue to receive support from the central coordination team, including 3 trainings per year, and an annual follow-up visit, including coaching. Training materials included guidebooks, road maps, and action sheets.
