The Health Project of the Millennium Challenge Corporation has organized a program called Active Movement and Healthy Food to promote better health for people between 15 and 64 years of age. It recommends less salt intake and less consumption of animal fat products.
According to surveys by the Ministry of Health and related organizations, 40% of Mongolians are overweight and one citizen in ten has problems with movement. The main reasons are incorrect diet, sedentary lifestyle, overweight, and tobacco and alcohol use.
The project will organize five health campaigns before March, 2013.
