Strengthening Health Outcomes through the Private Sector Project: Final Report 2009–2016
The Strengthening Health Outcomes through the Private Sector (SHOPS) project was USAID’s flagship initiative in private sector health. From 2009 to 2016, the project worked in more than 30 countries to involve nongovernmental organizations and for-profit entities in addressing the many health needs of people in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Caribbean. SHOPS focused on increasing availability, improving quality, and increasing use of priority health information, products, and services in family planning and reproductive health, maternal and child health, and HIV and AIDS through the private sector. This report provides an overview, results, and lessons learned from the SHOPS project’s six years of work in private sector health.
