  • SB – verbally only, Private sector has always existed, and has been particularly important in low and middle income countries. Personal involvement in work in the early 1990s through WHO on private sector,…but little progress in research for a long while. Nonetheless there were quite rapid developments in policy vis a vis the private sector stimulated by some of the global health initiatives (Such as global fund, and PEPFAR) among others.
  • Note, I will ask people to introduce themselves at this point – stating their name, institution and what the nature of their interest in the private health sector is.
  • Note will open up to questions after the first few questions have been asked of the panel.
