Australian Division of World Action on Salt and Health (AWASH)
The Australian Division of World Action on Salt and Health (AWASH) was a network of individuals and organisations concerned with salt and its detrimental effects on health. In May 2007, AWASH launched a five year salt reduction campaign.
The Drop the Salt! campaign will unite health professionals, the food industry, government, scientists and consumer organisations in a commitment to action to reduce salt intake in Australia. AWASH was the Australian arm of the global WASH group (World Action on Salt and Health).
This project is now part of the World Health Organization Collaborating Centre for Population Salt Reduction (WHO CC SALT).
