Despite significant strides in public sector provision of sexual and reproductive health (SRH) products and services in Zambia, barriers to access and affordability remain for some population groups. In addition, the prevalence of HIV/AIDS remains high across the country, particularly among urban areas. In line with USAID’s forthcoming Private Sector Engagement Strategy and the Government of the Republic of Zambia (GRZ)’s own plans to foster private sector development, USAID/Zambia plans to pursue new engagements with the private sector to improve health outcomes among the Zambian people.
USAID/Zambia has commissioned an assessment to identify opportunities for greater private sector engagement to contribute to a stronger health system in Zambia, particularly with respect to SRH and HIV-related products and services. This assessment will consider potential private sector enterprises that comprise, or interact with, the health sector, including pharmacies, health shops, private hospitals and clinics, importers and local manufacturers of pharmaceutical or medical products, social marketing organizations, health insurance companies, and even small businesses who play an important role in the health decision-making of Zambians: bars, restaurants, clubs, and neighbourhood shops.
Integra Government Services International, LLC (Integra) and Limestone (sub-contractor to Integra) have been hired by USAID under the Learning, Evaluation, and Analysis Project (LEAP III) to perform this private health sector assessment.
