dc.description.abstractThis report provides a situational analysis of the progress made in the Eastern Mediterranean Region in implementing the WHO set of recommendations, adopted by the World Health Assembly in 2010, which called on Member States to adopt policies restricting the marketing of unhealthy food to children. Increasing rates of childhood overweight and obesity and the extensive marketing to children of unhealthy food in the Region indicate that Member States need to urgently implement the recommendations as part of effective obesity prevention strategies and this report provides guidance to them on how to do so. It also identifies the issues that countries need to consider when adopting policies intended to restrict the marketing of unhealthy food to childrenen_US
