Abstract: Jointly with the Institute of Nutrition of the National Academy of Medical Sciences in Moscow and the Centre for Food Policy at Thames Valley University, United Kingdom, the WHO Regional Office for Europe organized a workshop on nutrition and food policy in the Russian Federation. The workshop addressed issues related to the agriculture sector, the food industry and consumers, illustrated the impact of nutrient recommendations on agriculture and consumer food intake and convinced the health professionals present of the need to work with other sectors when developing nutrition and health policy. The participants gained the insight into diverse perspectives of food and nutrition policy necessary to help them tackle the food and nutrition challenges of the Russian Federation. In addition, the workshop provided useful feedback that will enable the nutrition programmes at the Regional Office and WHO headquarters to finalize a training module on food and nutrition policy
