Policy symposium on NCD prevention

Policy symposium "Future directions for nutrition and physical activity policies to prevent NCDs across Europe" 14.-16. June in Brussels

Obesity is a chronic, relapsing, multifactorial disease, and the main risk factor for several other non-communicable diseases (NCDs).  The growing burden of NCDs are the leading cause of global mortality killing 41 million people each year. Successful policy actions to address physical inactivity, unhealthy diets and sedentary behaviours, key risk factors for NCDS can improve the health and wellbeing of populations and reduce premature mortality. The Joint Action (JA) Best-ReMaP, projects CO-CREATE, PEN and STOP aim to contribute to understanding how to achieve successful policy implementation at different cultural, demographic, or socioeconomic levels.

 

With the objective to share and discuss lessons learned from the four projects, a symposium titled "Future directions for nutrition and physical activity policies to prevent NCDs across Europe"  will be held from 14th to 16th June 2022 in Brussels, Belgium.
