Advocacy

EFAD is the only organisation advocating for dietitians at European level.
We work  in Europe with governments, civil society and others to raise awareness that:
  • dietitians are the only health professionals qualified to give dietetic advice
  • dietitians are able to lead or make significant contributions to local, regional and national action plans regarding nutrition and food
  • dietitians make use of their skills, knowledge and expertise when drafting or implementing policy
Recognition of the value and expertise of dietitians across Europe will support the successful implementation and realisation of such plans as the European Food and Nutrition Action Plan and will improve nutritional health for all.
