The private sector’s involvement in health systems is growing in scale and scope, particularly in law and middle income countries (LMICs) and it includes the provision of health-related services, medicines and medical products, financial products, training for the health workforce, information technology, infrastructure and support services. It is key for governments to build strong capacities to engage with non-state actors, harnessing all health resources to maximize efforts in achieving health goals, preventing at the same time adverse behaviours from the private sector in health.
This webinar will share lessons learnt on how to engage the private sector in health at the country level for it to help maximize country’s efforts in achieving Universal health Coverage (UHC). This session will include a discussion on the importance of effectively engaging the private sector in improving the quality of MNCH services. Lessons learned and experiences from Uganda will be shared, specifically from the MaNe project, which aimed to improve the quality of MNCH services in Kampala and to test effective government stewardship practices of mixed (public and private) health system.
