Improving Access to Medicines Through Public-Private Partnerships




This paper documents the poor availability of various Essential Health Product (EHPs) s in Africa and explores how to improve EHP distribution via collaborations with the private sector. Specifically, the paper aims to address the following objectives:

  • Assess empirically if EHPs are less available than CPGs in Sub-Saharan Africa.
  • Identify opportunities for health systems to improve EHP distribution based on lessons learned from CPG distribution practices.
  • Illustrate how public-private partnerships can leverage the strengths of CPG companies to improve EHP availability by sharing knowledge or sharing infrastructure.
