It is being coordinated by the State Research Centre for Preventive Medicine of the Russian Ministry of Health and the Research Institute of Nutrition of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences, with the aim of developing guidelines for a regional healthy nutrition policy specifically for the north-western part of the Russian Federation. In November 1999 a Workshop was held in Arkhangelsk to continue the drafting of these guidelines and to develop a policy of healthy nutrition for women and their families in Arkhangelsk.
