About this Health talk

Organizer: World Health Organization


The session is a follow-up to the first FAO/WHO/AU International Food Safety Conference, 2019. The conference resulted in a high-level political statement advocating for increased and better coordinated collaboration and support to improve food safety globally.

This session will focus on the application of digital technologies to strengthen food safety control systems considering different country contexts from the regulator’s readiness standpoint as well as the estimates of food borne disease burden.

The overall objective is to capture progress, bring together global best practices and lessons learnt, list gaps and action points to accelerate transformation of knowledge into action for food safety.

Key focus areas would be implementation experiences with digital technologies, impact, best practices, opportunities, and challenges in context of implementation, ethics driven approach to aspects of data and information collection, use, management, governance and related issues, and enabling environment.
