Five year evaluation report published on EU Platform for action on Diet, Physical Activity and Health

An external evaluation report on the first five years of the European Platform for action on Diet, Physical Activity and Health has been published. The report has been commissioned by the Directorate-General for Health and Consumers and carried out by the Evaluation Partnership on behalf of the Public Health Evaluation and Impact Assessment Consortium (PHEIAC).

The report - including its conclusions and recommendations - was presented to the Platform members on 1 July during a plenary session in Brussels. Follow up discussions on the evaluation report and the way forward will take place during the next meetings of the Platform. These discussions will provide valuable input into the Commission's mid-term progress report on the 2007-2013 Strategy for Europe on Nutrition, Overweight and Obesity-related health issues, which will be published in December 2010.
