Private Capacity, Public Payment: Private Business Participation in Government Initiatives to Improve Access to Critical Health Services

The interaction between the public and private sector, reliance on donor funds, and extensive government relations are just a few of the challenges faced when developing health systems in these countries. Often there is a disconnect, with each sector lacking understanding on how the others work. It is necessary for all sectors to work together to achieve better health outcomes, but this disconnect can make progress difficult. This event report offers recommendations to all actors, with the aim to help private partnerships in developing countries to become more viable, and inform governments on policy strategies, and market practitioners to make health services more available to people living in poverty.
