Joint statements on community health issues

Working together

We work with like-minded organisations to prepare joint position statements on community health issues.

As part of a joint position statement, we can:

  • make recommendations to improve diet and nutritional health
  • give credible dietetic evidence 
  • support the role of accredited practising dietitians (APDs)
  • lobby for policy change
