From: Promoting population health with public-private partnerships: Where’s the evidence?

Classification given Description
None Private partner or partners are unrelated to the health promotion activity and their products are not related negatively to health.
Private partner or partners produce items with a positive impact on health (fresh fruit and vegetable producers, toothpaste, pharmaceuticals)
Some potential for competing interests Private partner or partners produce or sells items which may have a potentially negative impact on health, especially if consumed in excess (meat industry, dairy, supermarkets.)
Multiple partners involved but not enough detail provided in order to classify the PPP in the other two categories.
High potential for competing interests Private partner or partners directly related to the health promotion activity, and at least one produces items with an established negative impact on health (alcohol, fast foods, sugary-drinks etc.)
