The 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), and specifically SDG 17, call for cooperation, collaboration and partnership between government, civil society and businesses to reach the agenda’s goals. In the health sector, this creates a strong imperative to find ways to effectively harness and steer both the public, private and civic sectors to achieve health goals and targets, specifically the SDG target 3.8 on achieving Universal Health Coverage (UHC), including financial risk protection, access to quality essential health-care services and access to safe, effective, quality and affordable essential medicines and vaccines for all.1 This brief builds from a 2019 call to action on the private sector in health for UHC.1 It aims to support countries in developing and implementing public health policy that is inclusive of the different parts of the private sector in health to maximize efforts towards the achievement of UHC.
