In celebration of the World Food Safety Day 2022, the WHO country office in Jordan developed a video in collaboration with FAO Jordan and the Jordan Food and Drug Administration (national food authorities). The purpose of the video is to communicate concise and clear messages on key practices for food safety. The role of the national authorities to enhance food safety was highlighted. The video concluded with calls for action by Jordan representatives of WHO and FAO to support food safety policies and regulations, foster multisectoral collaboration, involve all related stakeholders, and promote a culture of food safety. It clearly emphasized the messages of food safety saves lives, being everyone’s responsibility and a necessity for better health. 

The messages were prepared in Arabic, which is spoken in Jordan. English subtitles were provided for a broader international audience. The video was recorded and edited by the country office communication team and a filming company. The video was promoted through Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram of WHO Jordan, WHO Regional Office for the Eastern Mediterranean (WHO EMRO), FAO Jordan, UN Jordan and the Ministry of Health (MoH).
