COVID-19 is driving greater death and disease beyond the pandemic itself, especially among those least protected by health systems. At Vital Strategies, we’re reimagining public health, working for a world where everyone, everywhere is protected by a strong public health system.

Food Policy

Obesity and poor diet increase the risk of cancer, heart disease, stroke, Type 2 diabetes and related premature death. Malnutrition and obesity often coexist, as people increasingly consume cheap ultra-processed foods and drinks that lack essential nutrients but are dense in fat and calories. Vital Strategies’ Food Policy Program works with local partners to design advocacy campaigns that drive healthy food policy and empower people with information to make healthier choices.
