Framework for salt reduction

WASH have produced a report for the Malaysian Minister of Health which summaries the evidence for salt and blood pressure, identifies where salt comes from in the Malaysian diet and provides a framework for the Malaysian Government to reduce the level of salt intake in their country. This report is available on request for WASH members and other interested parties to adapt for their own country. To obtain a copy please contact WASH project co-ordinator, Katharine Jenner at including your planned usage of the document.
