Support Desk

Support Desk


The Country Support Desk provides tailored support to countries that are willing to engage the private sector to strengthen their health system. Support can range from facilitating public-private dialogue, conducting tailored capacity building activities, to generating evidence about best practices, and providing technical guidance to develop national policies and standards among others. The support desk helps countries through galvanizing the collective expertise of WHO regional, country and global expert and involving private sector engagement experts at local, regional and global levels.
