About Our Projects

The private sector plays an unprecedented role in creating and shaping healthcare delivery and in meeting today’s challenges to ensure voluntary family planning (FP) and other health markets are resilient, robust, and self-reliant. The public sector health system faces many constraints and cannot alone meet the growing needs and current market demand for health products and services.
