Public-private partnership

Over the last decade appreciation has grown about the potential power for greater harmonisation of the private and public sectors in the realisation of public health goals.

The private sector–whether multi-national corporates, local pharmacists and other providers, or faith-based not for profits or non-governmental organisations—plays a huge role in health, though often working in what has been termed poorly regulated markets.

HPI’s work in public-private partnership or PPPs has been as diverse as the sector itself and includes facilitating global multi-stakeholder processes related to transparency in pricing and quality  of medicines and supporting efforts to create a stronger public-private mix in health services, better harmonised to meet national policy aims.
