  • Deepak Kumar

    (ICFAI University Press)


Working with Private Sector Provider for Better Healthcare: An Introductory Guide aims to provide the most critical approach to develop strategies for working with Private Sector Participation (PSPs) for better healthcare. This Guide focuses specifically on those PSPs who operate on a for-profit basis, primarily in poorer countries, and who directly interact with service users, supplying them with healthcare services or products. The guide focuses the facts that PSPs behavior is influenced by policy makers and the people, who use the services. The guide also cites the need for a range of supportive, regulatory and incentive-based mechanisms to facilitate the healthcare system in developing countries. Thus it is an important soft area of the infrastructure, which has been discussed by the authors through this guide .
