This is a guide to conducting private health sector assessments in developing countries.
Detailed description

By providing key data on the size, scope, and activities of the private sector, these assessments help stakeholders develop strategies, make decisions, and design programs that will maximize private sector contributions to health, and facilitate greater public-private cooperation in health. The website is organized around five key phases involved in a private health sector assessment—Plan, Learn, Analyze, Share, and Act. Each phase describes suggested steps, activities, and outputs to help guide the process. Users can peruse the site to gain familiarity with the assessment process, and view tips and examples from previous assessments, and then have the option of printing out pages of interest, as downloadable PDF files.
