The Program focuses on promoting a productive, competitive and sustainable agriculture sector that provides a safe supply of food through local, regional and global markets, by formulating, improving and applying policies based on agricultural health and food safety and quality (AHFS).

Its key areas of focus are the promotion of institutional strengthening of AHFS systems; the harmonization, updating and implementation of health, safety and quality standards; capacity development for the adoption of best practices; and the tackling of emerging issues and health, phytosanitary and food safety emergencies, with an emphasis on cross-border cases.
