Healthy Diet
in Ghana

In the evolving landscape of global health challenges, Africa faces a critical juncture as non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are projected to ascend to the forefront of mortality by 2030. This transition occurs amidst persisting adversities linked to infectious diseases, undernutrition, and micronutrient deficiencies. Compounding these challenges are unhealthy food environments, posing a formidable obstacle to combating the dual burden of malnutrition. Food systems and public health experts, including the World Health Organisation, refer to them as “Best Buys” for their cost-effectiveness and feasibility for combating the double burden of malnutrition in low- and middle-income countries. Together, these policies aim to inform and empower; guide and influence; incentivize or discourage consumer action within their food environments.
