Mission: To support Member Associations in developing the role that dietitians have in reducing inequalities & improving nutritional health in Europe.
Vision: EFAD, national dietetic associations (NDAs) and dietitians are recognised leaders in the field of dietetics and nutrition. We will continue to pro-actively initiate & grow partnerships in order to improve nutritional health, reduce socioeconomic health inequalities & contribute to economic prosperity. To achieve our vision, EFAD supports the highest quality of dietetic education, professional practice, research activity & partnership.
Values: EFAD is a not-for-profit body pursuing no political or religious ends. Our values of fair, open, non-discriminatory, supportive & ethical behaviour guide our decisions, approach to partnership, communication & collaboration with our stakeholders.
Strategic Aims: EFAD supports its members to:

� develop dietetics on a scientific & professional level in the common interest of members
� facilitate communication between NDAs & other organisations: professional, educational & governmental
� encourage better nutrition for the population of Europe
� promote the development of the dietetic profession

By embedding dietetic education, professional practice and research activity in dietetics, we enable high quality engagement at all levels, thus addressing health determinants and creating supportive environments for healthy lifestyles & prevention of disease through nutrition.
Communication of our aims and objectives is achieved by fostering exchange of knowledge, best practice promotion and action with and between our stakeholders. EFAD is a member of key NGOs (eg EPHA, ENHA, EFPC) and the EU Platform (Diet, Physical Activity and Health). We gather/disseminate information through NDAs, newsletters (EU Thematic Network DIETS), papers, reports, conferences and the website. Our stakeholders include dietetic associations, dietitians, citizens, key national ministries, higher education institutions, food industry, policy-makers and other health professionals.
