Working with private sector providers for better health care, an introductory guide.

Abstract

The aim of this Guide is to provide a practical but critical approach to developing strategies for working with Private Sector Providers (PSPs) for better health care. A particular concern is improving access to good quality care for the poor. It is intended for policy-makers and programme managers working in developing countries’ ministries of health. They are referred to as decision-makers throughout the Guide. It is also aimed at donor advisers working to support the health sector in those countries; such advisers are themselves often decision-makers with regard to how donor policies are implemented. The Guide will also be of interest to other stakeholders: professional organisations, development banks, academics, consumer groups and other civil society organisations. It draws lessons mainly from experience in Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa.
