New opportunities for health in European food & agricultural policies

WEBINAR

Organised by the European Public Health Alliance (EPHA) and European Public Health Association (EUPHA)

11 May 2020

Health will be a new objective of the EU Common Agricultural Policy and the ‘Farm to Fork’ Strategy for sustainable food aims to design a fair, healthy and environmentally-friendly food system.

This webinar, organised as part of the European Public Health Week 2020, explored how health organisations can make use of these opportunities and add a stronger public health dimension to national food and agricultural policies.
