This report brings together nutrition-related actions from global and regional guidance documents to address diet-related diseases and reduce nutritional risk factors. The plan aims to achieve eight nutrition targets: the six global nutrition targets and two of the nine voluntary NCD targets – to reduce salt intake and halt the increase in obesity and diabetes – endorsed by the World Health Assembly in 2012.
