Our NOURISHING policy framework was developed to help promote healthy diets and reduce overweight, obesity and diet-related NCDs. The framework and accompanying policy database is for use by policymakers, researchers and civil society organisations, and was designed to illustrate that a comprehensive, multi-sectoral policy approach is needed to promote healthy diets and reduce diet-related NCDs, including cancer.
Our new policy framework was developed using our NOURISHING framework as a foundation to address physical activity, breastfeeding and alcohol consumption, in addition to diet. The new policy framework can be used by governments to consider policy actions that will help create environments conducive for people and communities to follow our Cancer Prevention Recommendations. This new framework complements but does not replace our NOURISHING framework.
As part of Confronting Obesity: Co-creating policy with youth, a project with a consortium of 14 research and advocacy organisations, we will be developing a policy framework to promote physical activity and an accompanying database of implemented physical activity policy actions.
