Since 2008, the Global Health Group’s Private Sector Healthcare Initiative has worked to understand and articulate the role of the private sector in strengthening health systems, and to identify and encourage innovative models of engagement. Through research, documentation, convening and dissemination, we have radically increased understanding of the wide array of private actors, and the extent to which they are accessed by different economic groups.
