Assuring Safe Food Systems: Policy Options for a Healthier Food Supply

This policy brief was launched by the Global Panel at its joint high-level meeting with the Partnership for Aflatoxin Control in Africa (PACA) on 12 April 2016 in Accra, Ghana. The brief takes a systems approach to reviewing food safety issues that are critical to poor and vulnerable populations in low- and middle-income countries. It argues that ensuring the safety of global food systems will require coordinated actions across policy, regulations, surveillance, and control measures to reduce the risk of foodborne illness.
