Until now, research on the private health sector has been seen to be of modest relevance to global health strategies. Our Private Sector in Health Thematic Working Group symposia have focused on demonstrating the significance of the private sector as an important source of health care, mapping the complex reality of pluralistic health systems and presenting the results of relatively modest interventions.
The event brought together technology innovators, investors, government officials, public and private sector health service providers from India and Africa
