Date29 January 2015
Year 2015
Summary
Consumers International, World Obesity, World Cancer Research Fund International and UK Health Forum welcome the ongoing focus and commitment by the member states and Executive Board of the World Health Organization to prevent and control non-communicable diseases globally. 
We urge the Executive Board to take this opportunity to request further such indicators which measure progress made in implementing policies to tackle the upstream 'causes of the causes' of NCDs, such as unhealthy food environments which can contribute to poor diet and thus present a major risk factor for NCDs.
