Engaging the Private Sector in PHC to Achieve UHC: Advice from Implementers to Implementers

June 29, 2016

What is it?

Advice from Implementers to Implementers is a practical manual that contains step-by-step guidance along with real-world examples and case studies to help facilitate public-private sector engagement around primary health care (PHC).
The first two modules of the Manual provide practical guidance on Initial Communications and Partnership Around PHC and Provider Mapping. Future modules will cover Provider and Facility Regulation, Accreditation, or Empanelment; Provider Contracting and Payment; and PHC Systems M&E.

Who is it for?

Advice from Implementers to Implementers is a resource for public sector policymakers and practitioners interested in engaging and partnering with private sector actors to improve PHC to achieve  universal health coverage (UHC).

Why is it useful?

Policymakers are increasingly interested in working with the private sector to provide PHC services in order to achieve UHC, but lack the information and resources to do so. This manual was co-developed to fill this resource gap.
