To accelerate progress towards the global elimination of trans fatty acids (TFAs) by 2023, NCD Alliance and its partner Resolve to Save Lives - an initiative of Vital Strategies - hosted a side event at the 72nd World Health Assembly on the elimination of TFAs on 22 May 2019.
The NCD Alliance launched its report “Trans Fat Free by 2023: Case Studies in Trans Fat Elimination” at the side event. The report presents case studies of six countries in different regions of the world that have enacted policies to eliminate TFAs from their food supply.
The report provides best practices, lessons learned, and recommendations based on the experience of policy-makers, advocates, and researchers who were involved in the TFA elimination efforts of the case study countries.
