IN.F.ACT. USA presents at the World Public Health Nutrition Congress 2024

Ellie Mulpeter, Program Coordinator for IN.F.ACT. USA, presented at the WPHN 2024 Congress in June alongside several members of the international research team working on a project that uses a novel approach to monitoring violations of the World Health Organization’s (WHO) International Code of Marketing of Breastmilk Substitutes (“The Code”).

The presentation was included in a panel discussion on the evidence supporting food marketing regulations. The WPHN Congress’s focus was: “Questioning the Solutions: Has the Decade of Nutrition delivered?” Researchers presented their projects on topics ranging from food insecurity, to infant feeding, to corporate capture and conflicts of interest in the private sector – all of which are, of course, related.

The research of IN.F.ACT. USA and team members in Australia, Canada and the UK continues in its enrollment currently. Interested parties can learn more at: https://surveyswesternsydney.au1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_cN14ryUEZriqHL8
