The First action plan for food and nutrition policy : WHO European Region 2000-2005
AbstractAccess to a safe and healthy variety of food, as a fundamental human right, was stressed by the International Conference on Nutrition in 1992 and by the World Food Summit in 1996. A supply of nutritious and safe food is a prerequisite for health protection and promotion. In spite of commitments expressed and efforts made at national and international levels, there is still a need for policies which reduce the burden of food-related ill health and its cost to society and health services. This document stresses the need to develop food and nutrition policies which protect and promote health and reduce the burden of food-related disease, while contributing to socio-economic development and a sustainable environment. It insists on the complementary roles played by different sectors in the formulation and implementation of such policies. It provides a framework within which Member States can begin to address the issue. An action plan is proposed for the period 200062005, with approaches and activities to support Member States who wish to develop, implement and evaluate their food and nutrition policies
