Abstract: Following the recommendations of a consultation on multisectoral issues and comments by Member States and others on the draft health policy for the WHO European Region, the WHO Regional Office for Europe convened a consultation on the food and agriculture aspects of the draft. The participants were experienced or involved with the food and agriculture sectors, food industry, local and national governments, private and public sectors, United Nations and European Union. They discussed how food and agriculture policies can contribute to health, and recommended both an updating of the situation analysis to reflect the implications of a rapidly changing food economy and a more equal balance between food safety and nutrition issues, stressing the need for an integrated approach at the local, regional and national levels. In addition, they identified the main stakeholders and drafted a list of main policy messages in the fields of food and agriculture. The participants concluded that the Regional Office should consider convening similar meetings, and that issue-specific or sector-specific policies should be developed as soon as the health for all policy has been approved by the European Member States
