The NCD Alliance, in partnership with Resolve to Save Lives, an initiative of Vital Strategies, is hosting a lunchtime event during the 72nd World Health Assembly in Geneva. It will address government and mission representatives, attachés, policy-makers, civil society and stakeholders from countries that have implemented or would like to implement policy actions for a healthier food environment and are considering how to eliminate industrially-produced trans fatty acids (TFAs) nationally.

The event is an opportunity to review the first year of progress of the REPLACE action package, and launch new REPLACE modules for action on TFA elimination by WHO. WHO’s REPLACE action package provides governments with a roadmap to implement actions across six strategic areas to eliminate industrially-produced TFAs. A case study report presenting  six trailblazing countries and the success strategies that have seen policies enacted to eliminate industrially-produced TFAs from their food supplies  will be also revealed.

This event is invitation only. Please direct queries to sbosch@ncdalliance.org.
