Get That Contract Signed! Promoting Public-Private Partnerships to Achieve UHC

*Recommended Audience: Young Professionals/Graduate Students and Mid-Level Professionals

As countries strive for universal health coverage (UHC), governments are looking for more effective and efficient ways to deliver affordable, quality health services. However, the gap between current health coverage and UHC goals highlights many resource constraints and technical challenges involved with implementing this agenda. Now, governments are considering the option of working more closely with the private sector to help fill gaps and address system needs through public-private partnerships (PPPs). In this interactive session, participants will learn about and design/negotiate a PPP from the public and private sector perspectives; the process will draw directly from recent work by R4D/PSI under the USAID-supported SIFPO2 project. Learners will use this simulation to inform the broader discussion of how countries can establish stronger PPPs to achieve UHC.
