Description: Effective interventions are undeniably required to halt and reverse the rising trend in the number of overweight and obese children, globally and in Asia. A research gap existed on “what has been done so far?” and “what worked best?” on this issue in Asia. This dissertation, thus, aimed to identify the childhood overweight and obesity related intervention approaches implemented in Asian countries, assess their effectiveness and identify the socio ecological context targeted by those interventions. A non systematic review of literature was conducted between April 2014 and June 2014. Altogether eleven studies from China, Thailand, India, Iran and Pakistan were reviewed.
