Main Content

This report provides a comprehensive review of the private sector service delivery landscape from existing evidence, and focuses on private sector engagement models in primary health care delivery settings. The report excludes private financing, which is only referred to in the report to the extent that health financing is relevant to private service delivery. The report provides an overview of the context, rationale, and role of the private sector in primary health care delivery, particularly as primary health care is evolving and repositioning in the new health care ecology. It describes promising private sector engagement and innovative service delivery models; and highlights recommended actions that can steward the contributions of all public and private health actors, in HICs and LMICs, toward achieving universal health coverage goals, through PHC transformation.
