IDF Europe supports statement to WHO European Ministerial Conference on Nutrition and Non-Communicable Diseases

IDF Europe has joined 6 other international and European organisations in support of a joint statement to the WHO European Ministerial Conference on Nutrition and Non-Communicable Diseases.

The statement highlights the progresses that have been made in recent months in defining the global architecture for the prevention and control of non-communicable diseases, including targets and key policy commitments for unhealthy diet and obesity.

In this context, the group of NGOs calls on Member States and WHO to consider 3 recommendations from civil society:

  1. Ensure a healthier media environment for our children
  2. Create a healthy food environment in schools
  3. Improve the quality of the food supply
