The SHOPS Plus team in India held a webinar on how to build effective public-private engagement and had public and private sector representatives share how they value these partnerships.
The Sustaining Health Outcomes through the Private Sector (SHOPS) Plus project, USAID’s flagship initiative in private sector health, implemented effective public-private engagement models to reach poor urban populations in India. The project leveraged public-private engagement models to increase the demand for contraceptives, oral rehydration salts, zinc, and TB products and services.
By strengthening partnerships between the government and private sector, SHOPS Plus helped to increase the demand for zinc for diarrhea management and created a scalable innovative model for doorstep delivery of tuberculosis drugs through an e-pharmacy.
