First time here - Support Desk

First time here?

We welcome professionals working with countries to submit queries to the Support Desk of the Country Connector on Private Sector in Health. 

The Support Desk works together with WHO and other local, regional, and global experts to answer your questions and provide technical support and assistance on how to better govern and engage the private sector in health. The answers may come in the form of a rapid research brief, a recording of discussion, direct connection with an expert, or collation of existing resources into a detailed list. 

If you are interested in effectively engaging the private sector in health, we advise you to explore questions which have already been answered by the Support Desk. 


If you have new or unexplored questions, please reach out to the Support Desk using the form below. Ensure that your question:

  1. Directly relates to the governance of health systems and the role of the private sector in health.
  2. Concerns relevant practitioner perspectives on policies or operations.
  3. Is clearly formulated and includes a stated purpose.

Please note that questions coming from Ministries of Health and WHO offices will be prioritized.

The Support Desk will work with you to further define your need and the best way to address it. Resources developed will be made available on the Support Desk homepage.
