Essential Nutrition Actions: mainstreaming nutrition throughout the life-course
Authors: World Health Organization
Primary health care is the foundation of universal health coverage; it is a whole-of-society approach to health and well-being, centred on the needs and preferences of individuals, families and communities. Nutrition is a foundation for health and well-being for all, leaving no one behind, and a critical component of primary health care, through its promotion and prevention, addressing its determinants, and a people-centred approach.
Healthier populations are achieved through multisectoral actions that are not limited to health systems alone, though often using the stewardship, advocacy and regulatory functions of health ministries. Optimal nutrition for individual health and development bridges interventions by health systems to improve the health of populations.

Background Documents Third international workshop of the Raw Materials Information System (RMIS) Agenda & summary
- Study The Raw Materials Information System (RMIS) is a comprehensive online repository of information on policies, activities and data related to the European raw materials sector. It supports a series of European Commission initiatives which aim to tackle the pressure on valuable resources and their more efficient use to the benefit of EU's economies. The RMIS provides a structured repository of knowledge on non-energy-related raw materials. This includes links to data, methods, approaches and indicators related to the most relevant activities on raw materials in a European context and beyond. The RMIS thereby contributes to consolidating the EU raw materials knowledge base, and aims at strengthening the visibility and competitiveness of the EU raw materials sector, while promoting green and sustainable growth.
