The Worldwide Charter for Action on Eating Disorders was developed through collaboration between the Academy of Eating Disorders and other professional and patient/carer organisations from around the world. The content was informed by a large-scale web-survey of key stakeholders. The charter is designed to be a tool to assist individuals diagnosed with Eating Disorders and their families and carers to identify quality in care and service practice, and to provide administrators with guidance to enhance service delivery and programme development. Two examples of core tenets of the charter include the right to accessible, high-quality, fully-funded, specialised care and the right to comprehensive assessment and treatment planning.
