Progress report on the first action plan for food and nutrition policy in the WHO European Region 2000–2005




At the WHO Regional Committee for Europe in September 2000, Member States (51) endorsed the First Food and Nutrition Action Plan for the WHO European Region. In collaboration with UNICEF, FAO and the European Commission, several workshops have been carried out to assist Member States in developing national food and nutrition action plans. A training manual has been developed to provide the framework for these workshops. A ministerial conference is planned in 2005 by which time it is hoped that all Member States will have national food and nutrition action plans. This report provides information on progress between 2000 and 2002 regarding implementation of the WHO Food and Nutrition Action Plan.
