A PEN article on stakeholder views on taxation of sugar-sweetened beverages and its adoption in the Netherlands is online!
An increasing number of governments worldwide have introduced a tax on sugar-sweetened beverages (SSB) for public health. However, the adoption of such a policy is still debated in many other countries, such as in the Netherlands. For this paper, the author team investigated Dutch stakeholder views on taxation of SSB and perceived barriers and facilitators to its adoption in the Netherlands.
