Policy statements

We share World Cancer Research Fund’s position on a particular issue to influence governments to make better policies to reduce overweight and obesity globally.

Statements are aimed at a policy audience and commonly linked to a specific event. We use statements to help shape outcomes of a particular meeting or strategy and to urge government representatives to take specific action.

Our purpose in making statements is to influence the development and implementation of effective policies that promote healthier diets and reduce obesity and non-communicable diseases.

If you would like to know more about what we aim to achieve and how, read our policy strategy for 2021–24.

If you would like to see statements from 2017 or earlier, please email our Policy team.
