Private sector financing in Africa can help countries meet their financial needs, by offering increased market access, choice, and accessibility. It also acts as a first mover in adopting and mainstreaming innovations into healthcare delivery. Furthermore, collaborations with the public sectors can bring significant operational and financial efficiencies, in addition to maintaining an equity perspective. Private sector is relevant across all elements in the New Public Health Order, from expanding manufacturing of vaccines to increasing domestic investment in health. As such, expanding private sector participation in health speaks not only directly to the New Public Health Order, but also strengthens the entire sector.
This side event will focus on discussing ways to harness the benefits of the private sector in health, towards achieving Universal Health Coverage.
