Framing the impacts of COVID-19: Securing food regulatory policies for the prevention of non-communicable diseases

What does COVID-19 mean for food regulation policy agendas? How will the pandemic impact states’ appetite for regulating food industries and how will public health advocates and practitioners keep food policies on the agenda?

Dr Yandisa Ngqangashe , Research Fellow at the Menzies Centre for Health Governance at the School of Regulation and Global Governance, discusses some of the challenges for food regulation to prevent noncommunicable diseases. In the transition to a post COVID 19 world, the framing of the impacts of COVID-19 will likely play a role in shaping the food policy agenda.
