Promoting dietary change in the Stockholm Cancer Prevention Program



Promoting dietary change in the Stockholm Cancer Prevention Program



Cancer Detection and Prevention 16(3): 203-210



The Stockholm Cancer Prevention Program (SCPP) (SWEDEN) is a community-based program aimed at reducing cancer incidence and mortality by reducing risk factors related to life-style: dietary habits, tobacco use, and sunbathing. The program, which came about as a result of a political initiative and commitment, has as its dietary objectives to reduce fat intake to 30% of energy and to increase fiber intake to 30 g/day. SCPP strives to achieve these goals by simultaneously affecting food supply and food demand. To date, the program collaborates with 12 municipalities and several large occupational health services and restaurant chains. It has developed cook books for caterers and the general public and has organized food fairs targeting policymakers and those working with food, education, or health promotion. SCPP emphasizes collaboration across sectors of society and has initiated contests for students studying food services technology and for retailers with the aim of promoting dietary change. The intervention is based on the principles and strategies of community organization.
