Report Examines How African Governments Can Work With Private Sector To Improve Health Care

A new report from the World Bank and International Finance Corporation outlines how the public and private sectors in Africa can work together to improve health care quality and access, VOA News reports (Onyiego, 6/6).

“The report found that many policies exist on paper, but are not implemented in practice,” according to a World Bank press release. “Thirty-nine out of the 45 countries researched have a policy towards the private health sector, but only 12 are implementing them. Meanwhile, all 45 countries require private facilities to be inspected, but in only five countries are the inspections carried out as required” (6/6).
