Universal access to healthcare: lessons learned from Public-Private Partnerships
In response to the global pandemic, International Financing Institutions and governments mobilized significant amounts of financial resources. COVID-19 hit weak and under-funded public health systems around the world harder, and showed market failure in private healthcare: we need to draw lessons and look forward. This interactive session will look at the impacts of public-private partnerships (PPPs) in the health sector, including World Bank Group-supported projects, especially for women and the poorest communities. This session will share evidence-based views on the World Bank Group’s role in health systems strengthening to understand the extent to which it is addressing the most urgent needs.
