Public Private Partnership
Public-Private Partnership Platform, linking representatives of the civil society, corporate sector, NGOs and institutions to stimulate multistakeholder, concerted and coordinated partnerships supporting the implementation of CBPs around the world.
Multi-stakeholder approaches are widely recognised to be necessary in order to tackle obesity epidemics on a large scale . Public-private collaborations are also considered to be more likely to increase the scope of financial and human resources that could be mobilised to serve public health programmes’ objectives.
The case of EPODE methodology, which may include public and non-for-profit funding and support (at national and local level) as well as corporate sponsorships, appears to be innovative and has demonstrated its sustainability.
On this basis, the EPODE International Network’s PPP platform will work at forging links between representatives of the civil society, corporate sector, NGOs, academia and institutions to stimulate multistakeholder, concerted and coordinated partnerships supporting the implementation of CBPs while guaranteeing mutual respect of and trust for each party.
