Global health problems require global solutions, and public-private partnerships are increasingly called upon to provide these solutions. Such partnerships involve private corporations in collaboration with governments, international agencies, and nongovernmental organizations. They can be very productive, but they also bring their own problems. This volume examines the organizational and ethical challenges of partnerships and suggests ways to address them. How do organizations with different values, interests, and world-views come together to resolve critical public health issues? How are shared objectives and shared values created within a partnership? How are relationships of trust fostered and sustained in the face of the inevitable conflicts, uncertainties, and risks of partnership? This book focuses on public-private partnerships that seek to expand the use of specific products to improve health conditions in poor countries. The volume includes case studies of partnerships involving specific diseases such as trachoma and river blindness, international organizations such as the World Health Organization, multinational pharmaceutical companies, and products such as medicines and vaccines. Individual chapters draw lessons from successful partnerships as well as troubled ones in order to help guide efforts to reduce global health disparities.

Public-private partnerships are increasingly advocated to alleviate deficiencies in the public health system as well as to reduce economic stress on those who seek services from an expensive, burgeoning and unregulated private health sector. Focusing on India, this book examines how the private sector in developing countries is tapped to deliver health care services to poor and under-served sections of society through collaborative arrangements with the government. Having emerged as a key reform initiative, aspects of public-private partnership are examined such as the genesis of private sector partnerships, the ways in which the private sector is encouraged to deliver public health services, and the models and formats that make such partnerships possible. Based on in-depth case studies from different states of India and drawing on experiences in other countries, the authors analyse challenges, opportunities and benefits of implementing public-private partnerships and explore whether partnership with the private sector can be designed to deliver health care services to the poor as well as the consequences for beneficiaries. This book will be of interest to scholars of public policy and development administration, health policy and development economics as well as South Asian Studies.

Over the past several decades, the public and private sectors made significant investments in global health, leading to meaningful changes for many of the world's poor. These investments and the resulting progress are often concentrated in vertical health programs, such as child and maternal health, malaria, and HIV, where donors may have a strategic interest. Frequently, partnerships between donors and other stakeholders can coalesce on a specific topical area of expertise and interest. However, to sustain these successes and continue progress, there is a growing recognition of the need to strengthen health systems more broadly and build functional administrative and technical infrastructure that can support health services for all, improve the health of populations, increase the purchasing and earning power of consumers and workers, and advance global security. In June 2015, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine held a workshop on the role of public-private partnerships (PPPs) in health systems strengthening. Participants examined a range of incentives, innovations, and opportunities for relevant sectors and stakeholders in strengthening health systems through partnerships; to explore lessons learned from pervious and ongoing efforts with the goal of illuminating how to improve performance and outcomes going forward; and to discuss measuring the value and outcomes of investments and documenting success in partnerships focused on health systems strengthening. This report summarizes the presentations and discussions from the workshop.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2011 im Fachbereich BWL - Unternehmensfuhrung, Management, Organisation, Note: 1, SanConsult Betriebsberatungsges.m.b.H., Wien (Vorbereitung fur die Rigorosumsprufung der St. Elisabeth Universitat fur das Gesundheitswesen), Veranstaltung: Current Issues Health Administration, Sprache: Deutsch, Anmerkungen: Im Anhang dieser Seminararbeit befindet sich eine Powerpoint-Prasentation zum Thema PPP., Abstract: Zur Finanzierung langfristiger Projekte trotz angespannter offentlicher Haushaltslage, wird seit einigen Jahren eine spezielle Art der Investitionsfinanzierung immer popularer, das Public Private Partnership, kurz PPP. Das PPP ist eine Kooperation mit Risikoteilung zwischen offentlichem und privatem Sektor, mit dem Ziel ein erwunschtes politikfeldbezogenes Ergebnis zu erreichen (vgl: IHS Karnten Konjunkturreport, 2005, S. 3). Eine Folge leerer Kassen auf allen Ebenen der forderalistischen Systeme, verstarkt durch die Nachwirkungen der Wirtschaftskrise 2010, ist, dass die klassische Form der staatlichen Finanzierung von offentlichen Aufgaben aktuell nicht mehr haltbar ist. Besonders die Aufrechterhaltung einer leistungsfahigen und modernen Infrastruktur ist aufgrund der sinkenden finanziellen Spielraume gefahrdet. Deshalb wird neben der Privatisierung offentlicher Betriebe, wie den Krankenhausern im Gesundheitswesen in Deutschland, das PPP als Alternative gesehen. Auf diesem Wege soll privates Kapital und Know how in die offentliche Aufgabenbereiche einbezogen werden, ohne die Kontrolle aber komplett abzugeben. In Form von gesamtwirtschaftlichen Gesellschaften bis zu Kooperationsmodellen eroffnen sich hier diverse Optionen. Ziel dieser Arbeit ist es das Finanzierungsmodell Public Private Partnership vorzustellen. Von der Definition, uber die Entstehungsgeschichte, die einzelnen Modelle sowie bestehende Vor- und Nachteile, soll auf die Einsatzmoglichkeiten, aber auch auf mogliche Hemmnisse, fur die Verwirklichung von PPP-Projekten im Ge

The leading challenges in public health--ranging from rising obesity rates to the fast-growing population of older adults--are complex and cannot be solved effectively by any one silver bullet or any one sector in isolation. Instead, their solutions require collaborative actions of many sectors, including industry, government, academia, and nongovernmental organizations. To better understand how to build multisectoral food and nutrition partnerships that achieve meaningful public health results, the IOM's Food Forum held a workshop on November 1-2, 2011, in Washington, D.C. The workshop brought together stakeholders from various sectors to discuss the benefits and risks of pursuing cross-sector partnerships, foster communication between sectors, and explore opportunities of mutual interest in food and nutrition that are most conducive for partnerships. Participants also discussed the perspectives of the various sectors, key features of successful partnerships, and what needs to be done to facilitate partnership development. This report, Building Public-Private Partnerships in Food and Nutrition: Workshop Summary, summarizes the workshop.

The Asian Development Bank, along with the people and institutions of Asia and the Pacific and the rest of the world, believes in the strength of partnerships and collective action. At the core of this belief is a desire to initiate and develop partnerships that will help governments address health care needs of growing populations, particularly women and children. Public–private partnerships (PPPs) have evolved from this need to relate to one another and work together. Governments recognize that they cannot do the job alone, particularly in the health sector where new disease patterns and the impact of climate change demand innovative solutions, such as PPP in health programs and enterprises. This guidebook offers readers a guide for the development of a PPP in pharmacy services through six simple, customizable steps. It looks at pharmacy services as an important component of a well-rounded health care and hospital systems. Through sustainable PPP in pharmacy services, people will have access to safe, effective, and affordable medicines.

​Public-Private Partnerships (PPP) haben sich in Deutschland und international als wünschenswerte Beschaffungsalternative für die Öffentliche Hand etabliert. Was den privaten Partner antreibt oder antreiben könnte, sich auf eine solche Partnerschaft einzulassen, wird meist nicht thematisiert. Und sind nahezu „insolvente“ öffentliche Institutionen wirklich attraktive Partner für die Privatwirtschaft? Bedeutet eine PPP-Realisierung nicht auch das Aufschieben staatlicher Zahlungen in die Zukunft? Inwiefern können private Akteure Monopolgewinne abschöpfen, wenn sie ein staatlich geschütztes Monopol bewirtschaften? Sarah Wolff gibt Antworten auf diese und andere Fragen.

Public–private partnerships (PPPs) have shown their ability to meet some of the challenges in the health and education sectors both in India and overseas. The Asian Development Bank (ADB) has been assisting the Government of India since 2006 to develop PPPs across sectors in India, through a programmatic joint PPP Initiative, Mainstreaming PPPs in India. Under the initiative, a special task team of the ADB, together with the Government of India's Ministry of Finance and KPMG consultants undertook a rapid assessment study to develop possible PPP solutions for meeting the challenges of India's health and education sectors. Assessments of local PPP projects in the sector, consultations with state government officials in India, and best practice examples from the United Kingdom and other countries, have led to the development of this report. This report will therefore provide a quick guide to international and national PPP cases in the sectors as well as practical ideas and suggested models to interested project sponsors, especially within government bodies responsible for sector development. Development of possible PPP projects based on some of the models and ideas suggested herewith will hopefully spur investment and efficiency gains in health and education infrastructure and service delivery mechanisms of the country.

This book considers the use of Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) in the delivery of physical assets, infrastructure and technologies and related clinical services, in the health sector. The PPP model represents the most complex form of contracting transaction yet to have emerged in the health sector, owing to its long-term character, financial complexity, and risk-allocation mechanisms. This book draws on the lessons of policy-makers, managers and private companies to address the specific challenges in the health sector. It is the reference guide to PPPs in health, presenting the theory, evidence and practice, and making them operationally relevant to all PPP stakeholders.
