Is public health trapped in a web of influence? Jonathan H. Marks argues that public-private partnerships create “webs of influence” that un

Often, corporate “partners” are contributing to the very problems that governments are trying to solve. We are told industry must be part of the solution. But is it time to challenge that claim?

Jonathan H. Marks argues that public-private partnerships create “webs of influence” that undermine public health agencies and distort health policy. These collaborations also frame public health problems and their solutions in ways that protect and promote the commercial interests of corporate “partners.” We should expect multinational corporations to develop strategies of influence as far as the law allows. But public bodies can and should develop counter-strategies to insulate themselves from influence.

Marks does not argue that governments are inherently good and corporations inherently evil. But, drawing on his legal experience and expertise, he makes a compelling case that they should be kept mainly at arm’s length: separation, not collaboration.

Jonathan H. Marks is a bioethicist and barrister, and the author of The Perils of Partnership: Industry Influence, Institutional Integrity, and Public Health (Oxford University Press, 2019). This book will be available on the day. He is currently director of the Bioethics Program at Penn State University in the U.S., and an academic member of Matrix Chambers, London and Geneva.
