Industry’s role in prevention

Prevention efforts by companies and industries can have a far-reaching effect on consumers and communities.


Industry’s role in chronic disease prevention is one of the Oxford Health Alliance’s main areas of action for 2006/2007.

The Area Goal for this workstream is:

  • Hold Oxford Dialogues to develop perspectives on corporate and industry roles and prospects for promoting healthy choices, and deliver partnership projects linked to programme areas.

Further details will be posted on this website in the near future.
