The present work utilized a comprehensive literature review to understand the evaluation criteria for PPP projects throughout the early-stage planning process. A qualitative meta-synthesis was employed to id...

"If government can't stop the smokes, no way we can stop selling them": why retailers want Government to act.

A fragile but critical link: a commentary on the importance of government-academy relationships.

Interactions between government and academia can be an important support to effective policy and they can also ground researchers' methods and perspectives more strongly in the realities of policy-making and politics, leading to more relevant research. If properly developed, these interactions can lead to relationships between government and academia that re-enforce evidence-informed policy and useful research. However, strong relationships require repeated interactions and strong personal connections, some...

The availability, prices and affordability of essential medicines in Malawi: A cross-sectional study.

The Malawian government recently introduced cost-covering consultation fees for self-referral patients in tertiary public hospitals. Previously, patients received medicines free of charge in government-owned health facilities, but must pay elsewhere. Before the government implements a payment policy in other areas of health care, it is important to investigate the prices, affordability and availability of essential medicines in Malawi.

Government plans to reduce death by suicide in England.

Emeritus Professor Alan Glasper, from the University of Southampton, discusses a new cross-government initiative to reduce the incidence of suicide in the country.

Improving research and policy interactions requires a better understanding of what works in different contexts.

There is keen interest in many jurisdictions in finding ways to improve the way that research evidence informs policy. One possible mechanism for this is to embed academics within government agencies either as advisers or full staff members. Our commentary argues that, in addition to considering the role of academics in government as proposed by Glied and colleagues, we need to understand better how research and policy interactions function across policy sectors. We believe more comparative research is need...

Tweeting about public health policy: Social media response to the UK Government's announcement of a Parliamentary vote on draft standardised packaging regulations.

Standardised tobacco packaging has been, and remains, a contentious policy globally, attracting corporate, public health, political, media and popular attention. In January 2015, the UK Government announced it would vote on draft regulations for the policy before the May 2015 General Election. We explored reactions to the announcement on Twitter, in comparison with an earlier period of little UK Government activity on standardised packaging.

Time series data have been analysed for this purpose. The long-term relationship betwee...

An online survey was conducted with a quota sample of 700 Korean citizens. The results from structural equation modeling suggest that social media competence and trust in government information are primary determinants of willingness to accept the new application and intention to use ...

The Role of Direct-Injury Government-Entity Lawsuits in the Opioid Litigation.

The opioid epidemic has ravaged the United States, killing over 100 Americans every day and costing the nation upward of $90 billion a year. All branches and levels of the government have pursued measures to combat the epidemic and reduce its societal costs. Perhaps the most interesting response is the emergence of direct-injury government-entity lawsuits, which seek to recover damages from opioid companies that facilitated prescription pill addictions. Cities, counties, and states across the country are su...

Challenges and Benefits of Repurposing Licensed/Approved/Cleared Products for a Radiation Indication.

Increasingly, the risk of a radiological or nuclear public health emergency is a major concern for the U.S. government.

'Secret Lists and Sanctions': The Blacklisting of the John Lewis Partnership and the Politics of Pay in 1970s Britain.

In 1977, the John Lewis Partnership (JLP) was blacklisted for breaching the Labour government's pay controls under the Social Contract. As the Callaghan administration struggled to establish economic credibility, extending its reach into the private sector emerged as a political priority. JLP became a test case of government resolve months before the Ford strike of autumn 1978 that ushered in the Winter of Discontent. This article uses JLP records to create a more nuanced picture of the tensions, contestati...

Do patents of academic funded researchers enjoy a longer life? A study of patent renewal decisions.

This paper assesses the extent to which patent renewal data is associated with government funding in a university context by focusing on the relationship between the funded patentees and renewal decisions of their patents. The aim of this paper is to show whether receiving funding from government contributes to high-value patents as measured by the patent renewal decisions made by their owners. Our observations of academic nanotechnology patents in Canada discovered a positive relationship between funded re...

Co-evolutionary simulation study of multiple stakeholders in the take-out waste recycling industry chain.

Take-out waste causes severe environmental pollution and wastes resources; thus, recycling of take-out waste is an urgent problem that must be addressed. From the co-evolutionary viewpoint, we used evolutionary game theory to build a tripartite game model involving government, consumers and enterprises, and then made simulation analysis using Vensim software, exploring the evolutionary equilibrium and the main driving factors. The simulation results showed that (1) no matter what government's, consumers' or...

Hong Kong's role in global health: Public opinion of official development assistance.

Governments in high income countries allocate funding for Official Development Assistance (ODA), and population-based surveys tend to show support for the concept of affluent nations assisting the development of poorer regions.

Generating sustainable collective action: Models of community control and governance of alcohol supply in Indigenous minority populations.

Restrictions on the supply of alcohol are amongst the most effective and cost effective interventions to address harmful use. However, despite international human rights bodies recognising that self determination must be pre-eminent in efforts to improve Indigenous health, little is known about the role of Indigenous communities in designing and implementing alcohol controls as well as the degree to which government resourcing and/or regulation is utilised. This commentary explores Australian examples of th...

Tobacco smoking in China: a pulmonary health crisis.

China's economy has had tremendous growth through the principle of command economy, where profitable private industries become government-owned and managed.

The present review takes an in-depth look at how the success of the government's tobacco industry has caused a pulmonary health crisis for the country with the world's largest population; and in turn, poses ...

Effect of menstruation on girls and their schooling, and facilitators of menstrual hygiene management in schools: surveys in government schools in three states in India, 2015.

Lack of menstrual knowledge, poor access to sanitary products and a non-facilitating school environment can make it difficult for girls to attend school. In India, interventions have been developed to reduce the burden of menstruation for school girls by government and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). We sought to identify challenges related to menstruation, and facilitators of menstrual management in schools in three states in India.
