Public-Private Partnerships a Panacea to Obesity Crisis in South East Asia

Pages: 14-20
Authors: Umar Ibrahim
This study assessed Public-Private Partnership (PPPs) as a panacea to obesity crisis in South East Asia, by examining food industries, state and private sectors roles in obesity phenomenon and contributions of professional bodies in promoting healthy diet and nutrition practice, toward obesity crisis management in the region. The study was based on desk survey, in which secondary data obtained through online and offline sources, on obesity related issues, focusing on PPPs governance in obesity control, were reviewed. Increase in overweight and obesity rates in South East Asia, demands interdisciplinary collaboration between government, civil societies and food industries to formulate and implement policies that alleviate obesity crisis. To achieve this fate, the study suggests four-ways partnership framework that guides PPPs arrangement, as a panacea to obesity crisis in the region. However, the indwelling endemic nature of obesity issue in the region, call for elaborative research on its causes, hindrances and a sustainable way out, focusing on those indices that suggest PPPs as a solution to the issue at stake.
