This report combines findings from three distinct studies in this research project: (1) quantitative research on attitudes toward the private sector, based on the questionnaire survey, (2) qualitative research on attitudes toward the private sector, based on key informant interviews, and (3) research on strategies to influence attitudes toward the private sector in health systems. 

This research project had two objectives:

  • To assess current attitudes of major global and national stakeholders on the role of the private sector in low- and lower-middle-income countries, with a focus on health service provision and financing for the poor.
  • To develop a set of strategies to address attitudinal barriers.
