'Healthy' trade agreements
The UK's Faculty of Public Health (FPH) is leading a project to support Ministers and officials in securing healthy post-Brexit trade agreements. For the first phase of this work, and building on the five Government commitments secured through FPH’s ‘Do No Harm’ campaign, we are developing a public health ‘blueprint’ for negotiating ‘healthy’ trade agreements that this and future Governments can adopt now and after leaving the EU. We will publish the blueprint in early 2019.
During an extensive programme of stakeholder engagement between July-October 2018, six key themes emerged which we've captured in this response to four consultations by the Department for International Trade on our post-Brexit trade agreements that closed on 26 October, and which we will explore in our emerging blueprint.
How can you get involved?
There are a number of ways you can help us shape our 'healthy trade' blueprint, including by joining our informal 'sounding board' of members. Please email FPH's Brexit campaign lead, Mark Weiss, for further information: firstname.lastname@example.org.
