In Partnerships, Private Sector Can Advance Global Health Goals

Devex: Expanding the boundaries of global health: The intersection of the public and private sector
Laura Asiala, vice president of client relations & public affairs at PYXERA Global

“…An increasing number of companies are turning their attention — and their resources — to the vast health needs of the global population for two essential reasons: It represents opportunities to create shared value and it is foundational to a thriving economy. Relatively new to the landscape of international development, strategic partnerships help to guide the strategies, investments, and on-the-ground engagements that can inform the deployment of the resources only the private sector can bring. … [P]artnership is required to achieve [the Sustainable Development Goals]. No one organization — or one sector — can do it alone. The challenges these goals represent require the innovative thinking from a diverse community of talent — leveraging government, nonprofit, and private sector professionals alike. … [T]he private sector — especially in partnership — can provide their assistance to build a world of better health for all of us” (10/7).
