The Action Plan is intended to significantly reduce the burden of preventable diet-related noncommunicable diseases, obesity and all other forms of malnutrition still prevalent in the WHO European Region. It calls for countries to act, using a whole-of-government, health-in-all-policies approach. Its priority actions will contribute to improving food-system governance and the overall quality of the European population's diet and nutritional status.

The WHO Regional Committee for Europe unanimously adopted the Action Plan in September 2014. Health ministers and representatives from the 53 countries in the Region gave their overwhelming support to the Action Plan and its priority policies.
