1 Mins read

While we have focused mostly on the challenges facing the public sector in health care delivery in Nigeria, the private sector is similarly challenged in providing private health care to anywhere near the standards available in India, Brazil, South Africa….and similar countries with whom we would like to rub shoulders …on our path to being among the 20 largest economies by the year 2020 ūüôā (if only it depended on how often the newscasters reported this on network news!)

Find below a link to thought provoking report on the role of the private sector in health in Africa from the World Bank.

The Business of Health in Africa: Partnering with the Private Sector to Improve People’s Lives.

Specific sectors include:

  1. The Role and Likely Evolution of the Private Sector in Health Care in Sub-Saharan Africa
  2. Actions Needed to Mobilize Private Sector Participation in Health Care
  3. The Case for Investing in the Private Health Care Sector in Sub-Saharan Africa

Most importantly find a presentation on Nigeria from 2008
