OUR PICK THIS WEEK

Expanding Access to Voluntary Family Planning Services in Mixed Health Systems

In “Expanding Access to Voluntary Family Planning Services in Mixed Health Systems: Lessons from linking private health care networks to domestic financing,” Results for Development (R4D) and Population Services International (PSI) share best practices and lessons learned through the implementation of the USAID-funded Support for International Family Planning and Health Organizations 2: Sustainable Networks (SIFPO2) initiative (April 2014 – Dec 2020).

This comprehensive report covers:

  • Rationale for public-private engagement;
  • Overview of the approach and frameworks applied under SIFPO2;
  • How teams in Nigeria, Tanzania, Cambodia and Uganda developed options for better private sector-led engagement with the public sector;
  • Examples of the enablers and barriers encountered in progressing toward a well-functioning mixed health system; and
  • Recommendations and reflections for public sector counterparts.
