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.
