INFORMAS in Chile is led by Dr Camila Corvalán and Dr Marcela Reyes.

INFORMAS has been implemented with 6 modules. Our team has worked mainly in the collection of data derived from food composition, and food marketing monitoring, which were key when building the baseline for assessing the impact of the Chilean Food Marketing and Labelling Law. As part of such evaluation and with new funding sources, we were able to keep monitoring some of the modules to update the evidence in our country (including during the pandemic period in the case of TV marketing). Currently, we are applying for new funding in order to maintain this monitoring and expand to other cities within country. 

Throughout the time we have been implementing INFORMAS modules, the outcomes have included student mentorship (8 Masters, 6 Doctorate, 1 Postdoc), invitations to oral presentations related to this topic (>60), interviews by national and international press (>100), and scientific publications (about 20 articles) as of June 2021.

Media Diffusion

We have given several interviews and helped informing different reports form written and oral press, in Chile and abroad, as listed in Table 1. In the case of local press, this has been especially important at every stage of implementation of the law, when the topic was relevant for the public opinion.
