Public-Private Partnerships in Health
Asian Development Bank Institute | November 2000
Partnerships are one of several tools available to policymakers to promote equity, efficiency, quality, and accountability in the provision of health services. The many excellent and diverse case studies presented in this workshop, as well as the expertise brought by the participants, show that many policy goals can be achieved through partnerships. Partnerships should be seen as mutually beneficial arrangements that involve all stakeholders such as the government, the community, NGOs, and the private for-profit sector. Each of these groups has its own special strengths. By taking advantage of those strengths, synergies can be achieved, leading to better outcomes for the poorest and hardest to reach. The role of the government in the contemporary world is changing. Governments today are unlikely to have the resources and capacity to fulfill the variety of needs and level of demand for health services.
