Review of PSI Research on Private Sector Providers: Key findings, Lessons Learned and recommendations | 02.27.12

Author: Nirali M. Shah

Abstract: Working in partnership with the public and private sectors, Population Services International (PSI) delivers life-saving products and services as well as behavior change education in more than 60 low- and middle-income countries across the globe. PSI’s evidence-based interventions target both the consumers and providers of health services, in a wide range of health areas including child survival, reproductive health, HIV, malaria, tuberculosis and maternal care. This review of PSI’s research studies with private sector providers and social franchises synthesizes findings from 10 years of formative, monitoring and evaluation research from 14 countries, and presents lessons learned and recommendations for future research.
