Benin Private Health Sector Census
The SHOPS project conducted a private health sector census of Benin to describe the size, scope, and geographic distribution of private health care facilities and providers in the country. The project collected data on services offered and provider characteristics. The census identified a greater number of non-pharmacy private health facilities than the 2,197 that the Ministry of Health identified in 2012. In addition, SHOPS identified 324 private pharmacies and completed interviews with 281 of them.
