Worldwide Charter For Action On Eating Disorders

This charter provides people with eating disorders, and their families and loved ones, with a list of their basic rights and reasonable expectations regarding eating disorder treatment and services. It was produced through collaboration between the Academy for Eating Disorders (AED) and other professional and patient/carer organisations in 46 countries around
the world.

The content is drawn from the results of a large web-based survey of key stakeholders (people with eating disorders, their families and other carers, and eating disorder health professionals) undertaken between February and May 2006.

This document was written in full knowledge that the quality and accessibility of eating disorder programs and services is not equal around the world. It is hoped that the Charter will serve as a tool to assist people with eating disorders and their loved ones in identifying high quality, appropriate services and practices, and to guide them in challenging unhelpful, out-dated, and anti-therapeutic practices. It is also our hope that this Charter will provide service planners and providers with the basic building blocks for quality program and service development.

The core value underlying this document is that a partnership among people with eating disorders, their families, and the treating team, with rights and responsibilities for all sides, is imperative for any quality eating disorder service or individual healthcare encounter.
