European Salt Action Network (ESAN)

The main aims and objectives of the European Salt Action Network (ESAN) are to:

  • establish, within the WHO European Region, a network of countries committed to reducing salt intake and building international action on salt reduction;
  • provide opportunities for information exchange on the implementation of salt-reduction strategies, as well as on related activities and achievements;
  • provide opportunities for information exchange on technological progress and developmental processes related to salt reduction; and
  • develop guidance for Member States wishing to develop salt-reduction strategies and provide technical expertise on the different aspects of a salt-reduction strategy, such as setting salt targets, monitoring levels of salt intake and salt in products, and communicating with the public

Switzerland chairs this network since May 2013.
