Public Health Responsibility Deal
The FDF is pleased to be a founding signatory of the Public Health
Responsibility Deal. Our sector clearly has a key role to play across a number
of the areas
outlined in the Responsibility Deal and we are keen to play a full part in its
We support the Responsibility Deal as providing an effective framework within
which Government, industry, NGOs and health professionals can debate issues
honestly and work together effectively to tackle public health challenges.
Launched on 15 March 2011, the Public Health Responsibility Deal has been
established to tap into the potential for businesses and other organisations to
improve public health and tackle health inequalities.
Partners signing up to the Responsibility Deal have committed to take action
through a series of pledges covering food, physical activity, health at work
alcohol. These pledges are not intended to replace Government action;
Government will continue to develop national policy, define priorities and
communicate public health messages.
The Responsibility Deal represents a step forward in terms of defining a
productive relationship between partners that all have an equal and valuable
play in its development and delivery. By working in genuine partnership,
Government, industry, NGOs and health professionals will support and enable the
make informed, balanced, healthy choices.

A certificate of partnership, signed by Jeremy Hunt, Secretary of State for
Health and a statement about participating in the Responsibility Deal have been
developed. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to receive a certificate of partnership and the statement for
inclusion in your organisation’s letterhead.
