Responsibility Deal evaluation begins

The Department of Health has funded a research team at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine to conduct an independent evaluation of the Responsibility Deal.

The initial part of the evaluation involved undertaking a scoping review of existing studies on voluntary agreements between government and business, which has now been published.

The next stage of the evaluation is made up of a number of components, including individual interviews and case studies with Responsibility Deal partners and other key stakeholders; with the purpose of exploring how the Responsibility Deal has been working to date, from the perspectives of a broad range of partners and others.

Evaluation and monitoring are integral to the Responsibility Deal and its partner organisations. If any partner organisations are contacted by the research team about participating in the evaluation, we would strongly encourage you to take part.

    Surely the irresponsibility deal is dead in the water with only the government and alcohol industry still signed up? The industry led decision to ignore the evidence and drop Min Unit price has surely backfired big time as there is no respectable body still signed up to the deal. I notice that the website has not been updated to explain this in relation to alcohol or food!

    We are disappointed that a number of health organisations have withdrawn from the Responsibility Deal’s Alcohol Network but product pricing has never been part of the Deal’s work.
