We use an evidence-informed approach to our policy messages
We work to influence governments around the world to develop, implement and evaluate evidence-informed policies to help people and communities adopt healthy eating and drinking behaviours, maintain a healthy weight and take regular physical activity.
We do this by encouraging and supporting national and international policymakers to take comprehensive action to create environments that are conducive for people and communities to follow our Cancer Prevention Recommendations. We research, analyse and communicate the evidence for policy in a way that enables governments to adopt and implement effective policy actions.
Our evidence-informed policy framework – NOURISHING – provides a comprehensive policy approach by outlining 10 areas where governments need to take action to promote healthy diets and reduce diet-related non-communicable diseases, including cancer. The framework is accompanied by an extensive, regularly updated database that holds examples of implemented government policy actions from around the world.
