Purpose of Review This article discusses what person-centred care is; why it is critically important in providing effective care of a chronic, complex disease like obesity; and what can be learnt from international best practice to inform global implementation. Recent Findings There are four key principles to providing person-centred obesity care: providing care that is coordinated, personalised, enabling and delivered with dignity, compassion and respect. The Canadian 5AsT framework provides a co-developed person-centred obesity care approach that addresses complexity and is being tested internationally. Summary Embedding person-centred obesity care across the globe will require a complex system approach to provide a framework for healthcare system redesign, advances in people-driven discovery and advocacy for policy change. Additional training, tools and resources are required to support local implementation, delivery and evaluation. Delivering high-quality, effective person-centred care across the globe will be critical in addressing the current obesity epidemic. Graphical Abstract
