Intersectoral salt reduction initiatives in Republic of Moldova

On 12–13 December 2017, a team of technical officers from WHO/Europe conducted a capacity-building workshop in Chisinau, Republic of Moldova, on intersectoral planning on salt reduction. The workshop aimed to strengthen the knowledge and capacities of local public health practitioners to define priority interventions on salt reduction. According to the preliminary results of the National Salt Intake Survey, the country’s adult population consumes 10 grams of salt per day, which is twice the WHO recommendation.

It also supported the development of practical steps for implementing the priority interventions using a multistakeholder approach. This approach takes into account the national applicability of national and international guidance documents, as well as gaps in knowledge and evidence for implementation.
