CSIS Task Force Report Examines PPPs For Women’s Health In Zambia, Including Lessons For U.S. Policy

CSIS Task Force on Women’s and Family Health: Public-Private Partnerships for Women’s Health in Zambia: Lessons for U.S. Policy
The executive summary of this report states, “…The United States is the largest donor to the health sector in Zambia, largely through the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR). Over the past five years, the United States has also helped establish several public-private partnerships (PPPs) aimed at advancing the health of women and families. These PPPs provide lessons about the potential impact of these approaches, the challenges inherent in such partnerships, and the importance of PEPFAR support. With future U.S. global health funding likely to be flat-lined, this is an important moment to assess how partnerships with the private sector can amplify the impact of U.S. investments in women’s and family health. The lessons from the U.S. engagement in the PPPs in Zambia are valuable for other such initiatives” (7/26).
