[Correspondence] Health professional associations and industry funding—reply from Modi et al

We are writing to clarify the position of the UK Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) with respect to engagement with industry, including infant formula companies. Revisions to our long-standing policy were agreed by the RCPCH Council in October, 2016, after a detailed membership consultation that provided a strong majority mandate. In brief (full details are available on our website),1 the RCPCH’s policy for accepting donations encourages donors, including infant formula manufacturers, subject to due diligence, to contribute to funds that support activities that benefit infants, children, and young people.
