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.

With resources for not-for-profit public sector organizations proving increasingly scarce, partnerships with the private sector are becoming progressively more important to the growth and support of not-for-profit organizations. Frequently, private sector organizations are seeking not-for-profit physical activity, health, and sport partners for the valuable and unique links to potential markets and brand associations. This mix creates controversy over if, how, and at what cost public health and physical activity goals can be achieved in partnership with private, profit-driven organizations. Public–Private Partnerships in Physical Activity and Sport is a guide for nonprofit, charity, and sport organizations in developing and maintaining strategic and responsible relationships with corporate partners. With its comprehensive and practical examination, this text is also relevant to private sector corporations seeking public sector partners and for agencies seeking to broker such partnerships. This text is drawn from the collaboration of leaders in public and private organizations, athletes, and academics who identified a need to provide formalized direction on partnerships between the public and private sectors. Authors O’Reilly and Brunette present a detailed discussion of the pros and cons of establishing partnerships between not-for-profits and private sector organizations. They also provide a thorough understanding of the issues and illustrate how a responsible implementation of these partnerships can benefit all parties involved. They offer strategies and tactics for finding, developing, implementing, and evaluating public–private partnerships and highlight how partnership and social marketing studies outside of public health and health promotion can inform these growing disciplines. Providing guidelines from the World Health Organization and other entities worldwide, this resource offers readers a framework for forming and maintaining beneficial partnerships. Readers will also find the Partnership Protocol, a public health-centered collaborative initiative led by ParticipACTION, which provides evidence-based public–private partnership guidelines for practitioners. A foreword by Kelly Murumets of ParticipACTION, an advocate of partnership building in the public health sphere, emphasizes the value of this resource in confronting the challenges of public–private partnerships in a thoughtful and responsible way. Throughout, Executive Perspective sidebars provide expert commentaries on partnership from experienced individuals in both private industry and public health organizations. These sidebars include Global Application questions that provide insight into issues and obstacles overcome in creating public–private partnerships in the contexts of public health and health care. Case studies throughout the book help readers understand how partnerships and social marketing strategies can be successfully implemented. This comprehensive text shows how public–private partnerships done properly expand markets, increase efficiency, provide resources, allow access to expertise, and provide platforms for marketing, activation, and programs. Public–Private Partnerships in Physical Activity and Sport provides information, guidance, and tools to help readers make partnerships work most effectively for their organizations according to their resources, scope, and purpose. Public–Private Partnerships in Physical Activity and Sport is part of the Physical Activity Intervention Series. This timely series provides educational resources for professionals interested in promoting and implementing physical activity programs to a diverse and often resistant population.

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.

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.

Development Issues in Global Governance presents the first serious academic study of multilateral organizations’ current partnerships with the private sector. This new volume describes empirically, and analyzes theoretically, the impact of such partnerships on the practices, legitimacy and authority of the parties involved. With detailed case studies of key international bodies, including the World Health Organization (WHO), the International Labour Organization (ILO), the World Bank, and the UN's Education, Science and Communication Organization (UNESCO), the reader is given a clear understanding of present debates in this critical area of world affairs. This invaluable book: includes fresh case studies that deal with five different industries: pharmaceuticals, software, water supply, tobacco and chocolate provides an overview of the scope of the phenomenon of partnerships in the multilateral system, and classification of different types is based on detailed qualitative research, including extensive interviews in the multilateral organizations places the findings in a rigorous theoretical framework, relating them to current trends in international politics and international political economy examines the challenges contained in the Millennium Development Goals: the provision of drugs to HIV/AIDS patients and vaccination for all children; the bridging of the digital divide; combating child labour; and the provision of clean water to the poor. The authors conclude that we are witnessing the emergence of a new institutional form, best characterized as ‘market multilateralism’. They argue that although transnational corporations have become heavily involved with multilateral organizations, these partnerships are crafted to deal with specific instances of market failure, while the guiding principles of the global economy remain unchallenged. This book will be of great interest to all students of development studies, international relations, political science and business management.

"The book not only gives a clear picture of the policy andstrategic framework of PFI/PPP projects, the governance andknowledge management issues through different phases from planning,design development to operation and service delivery and theprocesses associated with each phase, but practical tools,methodologies and capabilities needed to deliver PFI/PPP projectsin a range of sectors are also explained. It clearly demonstratesthe key imperatives that are the hallmark of successful programmesand projects no matter what there method of funding or delivery. I have no doubt that, in undertaking the programmes and projectsthat I am responsible for delivering and in undertaking OGC GatewayReviews, to support clients delivering their own programmes andprojects, I will draw on the material contained in thisbook." —From the Foreword by Rob Smith, Director of GatewayReviews and Estates & Facilities, Department of Health There is a growing demand worldwide for transport, healthcare,education, energy and water infrastructure. However, governmentresources are often insufficient to meet the needs of new projectsand to upgrade existing infrastructure. Private participation inpublic infrastructure is therefore increasing but the respectiveroles of the public and private sectors are the subject of intensedebate. This has led to renewed interest in public-privatepartnerships in developed and developing countries. Governance and Knowledge Management for Public-PrivatePartnerships shows how effective governance and knowledgemanagement can improve the performance of PFI/PPP projects. Itprovides an in-depth understanding of different dimensions ofgovernance and how they affect project management structure,processes, and decision-making ability of actors and teams involvedin PFI/PPP projects. The role of knowledge management strategy, theneed for benchmarking knowledge management efforts, specific toolsand methodologies for capturing, sharing and applying knowledge toaccelerate learning and capacity building are also examined. The book is essential reading for all those involved in PFI/PPPprojects, including policy makers, industry practitioners,academics and students. The practical tools for governance andknowledge management it offers make this book particularly usefulfor consultants, contractors and client organisations.
