Affiliation(s): 1Global Health Futures Network, Geneva, Switzerland
Key issues: The term public-private partnership (PPP) is applied to a diverse range of ventures designed to improve access of poor populations to particular health products or services. The presentation will review this diversity and attempt to categorize those that presently exist. Additionally, it will discuss: the skills and responsibilities of organizations in different sectors; issues raised by the emergence of so-called PPPs; what seems to work best in PPP operations; and the framework necessary for maximizing their potential contributions.
