dc.description.abstract In Switzerland, the direct and indirect medical costs from non-communicable diseases are estimated at 51.7 billion Swiss francs per year. This essay describes the challenges faced by the Confederation in its efforts to control diet-related chronic diseases, and discusses the various factors affecting the nutrition of the population. It highlights the need to, not only, build stronger political support for prevention and health promotion, but also to ensure coherence across policies in the health, the agricultural and the trade sectors. en_US
