The Role of the Private Sector in the Future Health Architecture


With donor budgets shrinking and developing countries addressing current public health challenges with limited resources, there is a critical need to engage the private sector in future global health solutions. The private sector contributes not only resources and best practices to health systems, they bring expertise and knowledge vital to creating sustainable health solutions and systems for the world’s most vulnerable populations. It is critical that the private sector play a more active role in the design of the new architecture of global health, not only as an investor but, as a strategic partner, integrating its efforts with those of civil society, donor governments and the plans and strategies of the national governments.

This session will explore innovative technology and existing private sector models that are saving women and children’s lives, as well as how new global partnerships with the private sector can be utilized to improve women and children’s health post 2015. Leveraging a full set of tools and partnerships will be instrumental in achieving the ambitious targets set out in the post-2015 development agenda.

Speakers include the Honourable Christian Paradis, Minister of International Development and La Francophonie, and Chair of the Redesigning Development Finance Steering Committee.

The Steering Committee of the WEF-OECD Redesigning Development Finance Initiative will promote a more systematic approach to testing and scaling up financial innovations and blending capital from philanthropists, private and commercial investors, and development institutions in order to accelerate progress towards these development objectives.
