Food is at the heart of well-being. But today’s dominant food system is unsustainable: it is eroding health, disrupting ecosystems and reinforcing socio-economic inequities. Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are the 21st century’s foremost health threat, responsible for the vast majority of premature deaths and diseases. NCDs are highly preventable.
EPHA advocates for policies to tackle the common risk factors to NCDs, and advance a transition towards resilient, sustainable food systems with health-enabling food environments. EPHA also takes part to STOP Obesity, once and for all.
