Summary
Our new Casebook looks at 12 experiences of public-private interactions to tackle diet-related diseases. Jointly funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and International Development Research Centre, the Casebook includes examples from diverse countries such as Fiji, Brazil and Spain. Each case examines interactions between corporate actors which manufacture unhealthy and ultra-processed food and drinks, and public health actors working in research, policy and practice. They highlight examples of the ethical and governance challenges of different types of interactions with corporate actors; and complement a new WHO tool to support countries to engage with the corporate sector on nutrition programmes.  Key lessons are identified for public health actors.
