ILSI’s achieves its mission is to provide science that improves human health and well-being and safeguards the environment by creating a platform for coordination, cooperation, and collaboration among experts from industry, government, and academia and other civil society organizations. We actively design our programs to foster multi-sector collaboration conducting, gathering, summarizing, and disseminating science related to the world’s most pressing health issues.
Better decisions affecting public and environmental health and safety are made when they are based on good science. ILSI believes its science – as part of the larger body of scientific information – helps industries make safer, healthier products and helps governments, civil society organizations, and individual health professionals provide effective and practical guidance to promote safety, health, and well-being.
Four Thematic Areas Provide Focus
ILSI strategy encourages global action on identifying and then resolving outstanding scientific questions in four thematic areas that capture the core of ILSI’s work:
- food and water safety
- toxicology and risk science
- nutrition, health and well-being
- sustainable agriculture and nutrition security
These focus areas provide structure for responding to and raising awareness of the pressing issues society faces. They also help elucidate new opportunities for driving scientific progress.
