Making It Work: Private Sector Partnerships to Improve Women’s Health


This special session is part of the Global Health Council Conference. It will offer participants the opportunity to hear from both sides of public-private partnerships to understand why more developing country private-sector individuals and organizations are engaging in efforts to improve women’s health. The partners will discuss what motivated them to enter into the partnership, their expectations, the obstacles they encountered and their views on the future of their partnerships.

The three examples demonstrate the various ways partnerships with the private sector help to improve women’s health in developing countries:

  • companies partnering with NGOs: providing RH/FP and other health services to women workers, their families, and communities in Indonesia;
  • maternal health financing in Gujarat: issues and options for public-private partnerships; and
  • building sustainable markets in Nigeria through south-to-south partnerships.

The event will be May 29 at 12:30 in Washington DC. Registration for the Global Health Council Conference is not required to attend.
