Public support for food and beverage taxes to address obesity has increased steadily. Questions about taxes in polls have been asked in various ways, and the results are therefore not directly comparable from year to year, but overall trends are clear. Support for food taxes rose from 33% in 2001 to 41% in 2003 and then to 54% in 2004. A 2008 poll of New York State residents showed that 52% of respondents support a soda tax; 72% support such a tax if the revenue is used to support programs for the prevention of obesity in children and adults.

12 October 2017 - WHO and the Government of South Australia published the Case Study Book on Health in All Policies (HiAP), which describes experiences from around the world in the context of the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda. While there is no single or simple model for HiAP, there is a growing evidence base of facilitating conditions for HiAP.
The case study book documents experiences, capturing important elements of HiAP practice through an analysis of established and emerging models. It is aimed at the international health community and the broader sustainable development network. It will be of interest to those who want to know more about implementing HiAP.
