How We Do It

The Health in Africa (HiA) initiative has been supporting the development of a responsible and sustainable private health sector in Africa since 2008 by:

  • Providing the analytical basis for informed decisions on private sector participation in health.
  • Supporting governments and the private sector on essential policy and regulatory reforms and leveraging private sector participation to accelerate achievement of national health goals.
  • Facilitating direct and indirect access to capital for private healthcare entities to increase investment in the health sector.
