Indicator 21: Saturated fatty acids

Global Monitoring Framework on NCDs

Indicator 21 - Adoption of national policies that limit saturated fatty acids and virtually eliminate partially hydrogenated vegetable oils in the food supply, as appropriate, within the national context and national programmes

The global monitoring framework for NCDs will track the implementation of the NCD action plan through monitoring and reporting on the attainment of the global targets in 2015-2020. The 25 indicators and the 9 voluntary global targets of the framework provide overall direction and the action plan provides a road map for reaching the targets.
