Strengthening Health Outcomes through the Private Sector

The SHOPS project was designed to enhance the effectiveness of the private sector as a sustainable approach to providing quality health services, especially in the critical areas of family planning and reproductive health, MCH, and HIV and AIDS. Other areas of focus included infectious disease; water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH); and environmental health. By engaging and supporting the growing private health sector in developing countries, as a complement to public sector health services, the project aimed to improve both the availability and the quality of critical health services.
