Sustain welcomes OHA to the alliance
We are pleased to announce that the Obesity Health Alliance have joined Sustain. This formalises a longstanding partnership working together to improve the nation’s health.
The OHA is a coalition of more than 40 health organisations who advocated for policies to improve population health and address obesity. Sustain’s Children’s Food Campaign has been an active part of the OHA for years, working closely on junk food marketing policies, fiscal measures and much more.
In joining Sustain, the OHA have stated their excitement at ‘the opportunity to work with a broader range of organisations campaigning for a better food environment.’
Ben Reynolds, Sustain’s Deputy CEO welcomed their application:
“We have such a productive working relationship with the OHA, that this will only help strengthen those bonds. They have been an inspiration in recent years by working tirelessly and effectively to drive the progress on some world-leading obesity policies. We have stood side by side in driving this change, and hope this close working will continue and that we turn the tide on diet related disease.”
