Doubts raised for UN progress at disease summit

Doubts raised for UN progress at disease summit:

Many countries are also unwilling to turn into nanny states that closely monitor their citizens' eating, drinking and exercise. "Addressing (chronic diseases) requires behavior change and most countries are very bad at this because it's so complicated," said Sophie Harman, a global health expert at City University in London.
She said most countries would probably voice support for WHO's chronic diseases solutions, but she wasn't convinced much more would be done. "All countries say they need to tackle these issues," she said. "But the implementation is difficult, and then all you're left with is the rhetoric."

I hope she's right.And really that's all I have to say when thinking about this
