Commercial determinants of health

Supporting local public health teams to harness the positive and tackle the negative commercial determinants of health.

This project, funded by The Health Foundation, will support local public health teams and their partners to increase awareness of, and combat, the negative commercial determinants of health (CDOH).

Our project advisory group, chaired by Gerry Taylor (Director of Public Health for Sunderland City Council), is made up of DsPH from across the four nations and Crown Dependencies as well as representatives from:


  • To increase levels of awareness about CDOH.
  • To build consensus across different organisations with an interest in CDOH – ensuring a wider context, cutting across single issues such gambling, obesity and tobacco.
  • To develop guidance and resources for DsPH in all four nations and the Crown Dependencies to enable them to work with local businesses and communities to maximise their health impact, whilst addressing CDOH.
  • To develop and promote a set of quality improvement recommendations for local government.
