The specific objectives of INFORMAS are to:


1. Develop a global network of public-interest organisations and research groups to monitor, benchmark and support efforts to create healthy food environments and reduce obesity and NCDs and their related inequalities


2. Collect, collate and analyse data on public and private sector policies and actions, food environments, population diets, obesity and NCDs


3. Compare and communicate the progress on improving food environments against good practice benchmarks, between countries and over time


4. Use the results to strengthen public health efforts, particularly by supporting the translation of relevant evidence into public and private sector actions
