“Public-Private Partnership Related to Food and Health” Comparative and Global Perspectives, Ethical and Policy Implications
Governments and intergovernmental organizations increasingly rely on public-private partnerships (PPPs) to address the “double burden of malnutrition” (under-nutrition and over-nutrition). This presentation examines the ethical and policy implications of such approaches, drawing on a variety of examples at local, national, and international levels. What impact do PPPs have on the strategic priorities and institutional integrity of public sector entities? Can these partnerships also undermine trust and confidence in government agencies and intergovernmental organizations, particularly in light of concerns about industry influence. What are the cumulative effects of PPPs? To help policymakers address these questions, this presentation outlines a systemic approach to the ethical assessment of public-private partnerships related to food and health.
