During the last decades, a big success has been achieved in the area of public health. However, in order to better make use of its full potential, further political support, a further development of research infrastructures and more international engagement is needed.

At the 3rd JPI HDHL International Conference held in Brussels on 19th June the second edition of the JPI HDHL SRA has been presented to an audience of almost 200 representatives of different stakeholders in the domains of food, nutrition and health.

The strategic objectives outlined in this SRA will be executed through a series of Implementation Plans which will be developed by the Management Board and guided by the advice of the Scientific and Stakeholder Advisory Boards up to 2020 and beyond.
