Warm, D., Yngve, A., Sjostrom, M. and Margetts, B. (2001) Developing an evidence-based approach to Public Health Nutrition: translating evidence into policy Public Health Nutrition, 4, (6A), pp. 1393-1397. (doi:10.1079/PHN2001226).

Record type: Article


The aim of this paper is to highlight the importance of an evidence-based approach to the development, implementation and evaluation of policies aimed at improving nutrition-related health in the population. Public Health Nutrition was established to realise a population-level approach to the prevention of the major nutrition-related health problems world-wide. The scope is broad and integrates activity from local, national, regional and international levels. The aim is to inform and develop coherent and effective policies that address the key rate-limiting steps critical to improving nutrition-related public health. This paper sets out the rationale for an evidence-based approach to Public Health Nutrition developed under the umbrella of the European Network for Public Health Nutrition.
