In theory, trade liberalization can be good for health. However, the ability of governments worldwide to introduce and implement social protection and public health policies and laws is increasingly threatened by trade and investment treaties that privilege investors over governments and provide supra-national avenues for corporations to challenge democratically-enacted public policies. The Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) Agreement is currently under negotiation and looks likely to extend the scope of trade liberalization far beyond reducing import barriers to trade in goods and services.

Part four of this series features Dr. Anne-Marie Thow from the University of Sydney with her talk titled: 'Free trade and investment agreements and public health nutrition'.

'A spotlight on the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement' is a one-day symposium which was held on 9 May at ANU and discussed a range of social, nutrition and health equity issues arising from 21st century trade agreements, focusing on the TPP. This event was hosted by the NCEPH, and presentation slides are available from their website
