Innovative Pro-Poor Healthcare Financing and Delivery Models

The report describes 33 innovative pro-poor healthcare financing and delivery programs in South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa that are led by or engage the private heath sector. The programs were selected based on their relevance to broader health systems and potential to achieve positive impact for poor people. While these programs range from donor-driven initiatives to large-scale government-subsidized efforts to for-profit businesses, they all involve the private health sector. These programs complement key elements of countries’ healthcare financing and delivery platforms, and national governments, donors, and development agencies may consider these or similar programs as stepping stones toward longer term health system reform.
