Salt reduction under threat at the UN High level meeting in New York

30 November 2011

1 September 2011

Several Western countries, which are already reducing salt intake in their own countries, are trying to block salt reduction in all countries around the world. We urge WASH members to distribute this release and get this message through to your country's UN group, and in particular, make sure that the target of 5g by 2025 for salt reduction is included in the Outcome Document. Without this, no action will follow, and the fantastic opportunity to reduce global NCDs will be lost.
