We support WHO Member States to reduce population salt intake
We have a remit to support WHO Member States achieve the global target of a 30% relative reduction in mean population salt intake by 2025, as part of a set of 9 global targets to reduce non-communicable diseases.
Reducing Population Salt is High Priority
Around the world, we are eating on average 10 grams of salt per day, which is double the recommended maximum limit, and it is contributing to the leading cause of death: cardiovascular diseases (including heart attack and stroke).
