INFORMAS (International Network for Food and Obesity / non-communicable Diseases Research, Monitoring and Action Support) is a global network of public-interest organisations and researchers that aims to monitor, benchmark and support public and private sector actions to create healthy food environments and reduce obesity and non-communicable diseases (NCDs) and their related inequalities.

INFORMAS is consistent with and supportive of the list of policy options for countries included in the WHO's Global Action Plan for the Prevention and Control of Non-Communicable Diseases (2013-2020).

INFORMAS supports the World Cancer Research Fund International NOURISHING framework, which formalises a package of policies to promote healthier eating and prevent obesity and NCDs that is applicable globally. The framework serves as a repository and tool to categorise and monitor food and nutrition policy exemplars from around the world.
