Private healthcare in Africa

This page in:

This World Bank-IFC report (pdf) aims to discredit three common myths regarding private sector health care in Africa:

  • That the private sector is for the rich and the public sector is for the poor;
  • That health is mainly financed by the public sector; and
  • That the private sector is not very developed in most African countries.

The report also asks how donors and governments can better engage with the private sector, citing examples of successful public-private partnerships. (via PSP One)

Update: PSP-One is also offering a "State of the Private Health Sector" wall chart. Order your free copy.
