HANSHEP Health Enterprise Fund Research Study: Year 3 Findings

The HANSHEP Health Enterprise Fund (HHEF) was implemented as part of the Strengthening Health Outcomes through the Private Sector (SHOPS) project from January 2013June 2015. The HHEF selected enterprises and provided them with grant funding and technical assistance to increase the financial, knowledge, human, and social capital of the grantees to facilitate their transition to scale. This report details the findings from Year Three of a longitudinal research study of three HHEF enterprises. Year Three of the study identified how enterprises implement quality assurance and improvement standards and how HHEF investments contributed to increases in availability of quality services. The study finds that the enterprises do apply robust quality assurance standards, which have an associated cost. Enterprises are motivated to comply with quality standards, in part, to differentiate themselves from their competitors.
