Four Principles for Private Sector Engagement in Health Care

Published on June 16, 2021

More than 40 percent of health services are delivered through the private sector in low- and middle-income countries. However, when both public and private sector actors deliver services in a mixed health system environment, national efforts to strengthen the capacity of people and systems to provide health care often leave out the private sector. This latest blog post by Population Services International (PSI), which leads MOMENTUM Private Healthcare Delivery, shares how the project uses four key principles from USAID’s Private Sector Engagement (PSE) Policy to improve the capacity of the private sector to deliver health care. In partnership with private sector providers, MOMENTUM Private Healthcare Delivery tests how to design and deliver effective and sustainable solutions for maternal, newborn and child health, voluntary family planning, and reproductive health care.

When it comes to strengthening pathways to health care for mothers, children, and their communities, the private sector’s contributions can’t be overlooked.
