Collaboration with industry has become the paradigm in public health. Governments have developed increasingly close relationships with companies that are creating or exacerbating the very problems public health agencies are trying to solve. Nowhere is this more evident than in partnerships with food and soda companies to address obesity and diet-related non-communicable diseases. The author argues that public-private partnerships and multi-stakeholder initiatives create webs of influence that undermine the integrity of public health agencies
Jonathan H. Marks is the Director of the Bioethics Program at Pennsylvania State University, and affiliate faculty at Penn State Law and the School of International Affairs. Whether writing about torture, fracking, obesity, or public health, his work addresses the intersections of ethics, law, and policy. His research also explores the related concepts of institutional ethics, integrity, and corruption.
