Moving health to the heart of agri-food policies; mitigating risk from our food systems

Core message

  • Food systems are increasingly associated with risks of emerging and re-emerging diseases.
  • In addition, food systems are part of a structural problem with regards under and over nutrition.
  • The public health externalities from the food system are large and not well managed.
  • A move towards a holistic, One Health, approach to food systems and human health is urgently required.
