Formerly known as the McGill World Platform for Health and Economic Convergence (MWP), the MCCHE is a world-leader in promoting integrative and interdisciplinary solutions to diet-and lifestyle-related global health challenges. This approach seeks to control and prevent health problems, such as obesity and under-nutrition, in ways that stimulate economic growth, by enabling innovation and transformation in diet and lifestyle, as well as in agriculture, food and health value chains, markets and systems.

No single scientific or social discipline can unravel the causes of these pervasive societal challenges-and no single scientific or social discipline alone will solve them. We need to break free of siloed efforts and undertake a collaborative, integrated, trans-disciplinary approach-one that bridges the current divisions between actors in the marketplace, in civil society, and in government.

The Mission

To foster innovative, integrative solutions to the world’s most pressing problems such as malnutrition and obesity by collaborating with leading academics and top industry experts in the fields of management, medicine, agriculture, business, law, economics, etc.

To promote excellence in academic research by developing a knowledge base and facilitating its translation into concrete activities, strategies, and policies, with the objective of generating health-promoting social and business changes.
