The World Economic Forum on Latin America brought together representatives of public health authorities, the commercial food industry and civil society for a private session on Creating Healthier Environments and Lifestyles. The meeting was held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on 27 April 2011. The collaboration between the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) and the World Economic Forum aims, among other things, to catalyze advances in two specific areas: healthy workplaces, as a common denominator for all employers across industries, geographies and sectors; and sodium/salt reduction in processed foods, requiring collaboration between governments, regulatory agencies, civil society and private sector companies engaged in food processing.
