International strategies to reduce population salt intake
- Years funded:
- 2015 - 2018
The World Health Organization (WHO) has recently introduced a new target whereby it is recommended that countries reduce salt intake by 30% by 2025. As such, effective, sustainable and scalable strategies to reduce salt intake are required.
This research program will support the optimal development of such strategies. It will include trials and intervention research projects, supplemented through a series of systematic reviews and feasibility and cost-effectiveness assessments. The main outcome will be new evidence on the effectiveness of different salt reduction interventions. This will be disseminated widely through training and best practice guidelines, and used to guide policy and practice for member countries.
