Abstract
This report focuses  on the challenges public-private partnerships and other interactions can present, especially when they involve commercial entities whose high fat, salt and sugar products contribute to obesity and non-communicable diseases. The report summarises key actions identified at a meeting to address governance gaps on conflict of interest safeguards for food and nutrition policy. The meeting was co-convened by the UK Health Forum and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research-Institute of Population and Public Health (CIHR-IPPH), and hosted at the Rockefeller Foundation’s Bellagio Conference Centre in October 2015.
