Call for case studies: Public-Private interactions in nutrition-related non-communicable diseases

Type: Call for Papers
Date: July 16, 2016
Subject Fields: Health and Health Care, History of Science, Medicine, and Technology

The International Development Research Centre (IDRC), the Canadian Institutes of Health Research - Institute of Population and Public Health (IPPH), and the UK Health Forum (UKHF) are calling for cases detailing experiences of public-private interactions that seek to prevent nutrition-related non-communicable diseases (NCDs). The resulting Casebook will be an edited collection of approximately twelve articles with accompanying commissioned commentaries.

The Casebook’s aim is to support the strenghtening of the governance processes of these public-private interactions (e.g. decision-making) and prevent conflicts of interest. Cases may be submitted from other risk factor areas, such as alcohol control, where it can be demonstrated that they offer transferable lessons for the prevention of nutrition-related NCDs.

If you are interested in contributing to this collection, please review the guidelines for authors and submit a short abstract of your case (between 350 – 700 words) electronically as a Word document to Modi Mwatsama, UK Health Forum at Policy@ukhealthforum.org.uk by 15 July, 2016, 23:59 GMT.
