AHPA contributed to the development of the Food-Environment Policy Index (EPI) which makes food policy recommendations for each state and nationally.

Prepared by the Australian Prevention Partnership Centre, Deakin University and INFORMAS (International Network for Food and Obesity/NCDs Research, Monitoring and Action Support) and released in February 2017, the final reports are available here www.foodpolicyindex.org.au and provide interesting reading.

There is an overall report for Australia as well as individual reports and recommendations for each State/Territory in relation to food policies and healthy food environments. Please share these reports amongst your networks.

You may also be interested in the media reports (e.g., http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-02-20/four-things-australia-could-do-to-tackle-the-obesity-crisis/8285280 and http://www.canberratimes.com.au/act-news/limit-availability-of-unhealthy-food-study-urges-act-20170219-gugfbn.html).
