Harnessing Opportunities for Scalability, Replication and Sustained Country Ownership under Public-Private Partnerships

  • 2107 Wilson Boulevard Arlington, VA, 22201 United States (map)

Hosted by Cardno

Cardno will host a satellite event during the Global Partnership Week 2017 centered on the theme of increasing the scale of sustainable country ownership of PPPs. Cardno is uniquely positioned to host this session with over 15 years in managing, developing and scaling up PPPs, including the current implementation of an $80M Centers for Disease Control and Prevention-funded cooperative agreement (2009-2020), Public-Private Partnerships in PEPFAR Countries Project (P4). P4 has managed over 15 diverse partnerships in its portfolio.

This panel will include representatives from both public and private sector partners of the mHealth Tanzania Public-Private Partnership, an innovative partnership among CDC Tanzania, Ministry of Health, Community Development, Gender, the Elderly and Children, health NGOs and private sector companies, including mobile network operators. The partnership supports the achievement of PEPFAR goals and the Ministry’s initiatives, including the Government of Tanzania Campaign on Accelerated Reduction of Maternal Mortality and the Health Sector Strategic Plan. The partnership leverages economies of scale and pools expertise and resources from diverse partners that harness mobile phone technology, including USSD and SMS platforms, for sustainable and scalable public health programs.

The forum will discuss best practices, lessons learned and experiences on how to scale and sustain PPPs to effectively address evolving priorities of global and national health programs. Many discussions around partnerships focus on the value provided to partners at the start-up phase while neglecting to touch on the need for adaption as they mature. However, during this event attendees will learn how the mHealth Tanzania’s partnership has identified and implemented opportunities for growth as the PPP has evolved. Lastly, the forum will address the holistic nature of the partnership by highlighting key factors that drive both financial and programmatic sustainability and provide adaptive services that can address the needs of multiple partners and sustain country ownership.
