Stewarding the Private Sector for Family Planning

Download File


In many countries, public sector stewards are increasingly interested in working with the private sector to help achieve family planning goals and universal health coverage, but they often lack the skills, information, and resources to do so. This primer highlights examples of successful efforts by public stewards to engage the private health sector in the areas of policy and strategy development, regulation, and supervision. Based on these examples, the primer recommends approaches for donors, implementing partners, and governments to consider as they seek to improve public stewardship of private providers for better family planning outcomes.
