Obesity agenda in Brazil, conflicts of interest and corporate activity

Goal

Analyze corporate political activity (CPA) and COI situations involving the private commercial sector in the food and nutrition field in Brazil, using EIPCO as a reference.

Results

The ideas and interests of EIPCO (Intersectoral Strategy for Obesity Prevention and Control)were identified. EIPCO does not question the private commercial sector's practices in regard to obesity and some of its recommended actions reflect disputes about the concept of healthy eating. All cases involved CPA to promote UPF consumption, which may indicated a COI.
