On behalf of the Dutch Ministry of Public Health, Welfare and Sport, ZonMw is a member of the JPI HDHL. The JPI HDHL brings together 26 countries that align research programming and fund new research to prevent or minimise diet-related chronic diseases.
The strategic goal is to improve dietary quality in an environmentally-sustainable way, based on insights and developments in food, nutrition and the social and health sciences, and to develop evidence-based recommendations and innovative formats for food products. Together with changes in physical activity/sedentary behaviour this should have a major impact on public health, increasing quality of life and prolonging productive life, simultaneously reducing the environmental burden of diet.

Research on Nutrition & Health can play an important rol to improve public health, and increasing the quality of life. Through JPI HDHL, 26 governments work together to improve the effectiveness of Research & Innovation investments and to increase knowledge supporting society in moving towards a healthier and more sustainable diet.
