Infographic: Vriddhi Contributes to Private Sector Engagement for RMNCH+A Services in India


Private medical practitioners are preferred health service providers across the socio-economic spectrum in India, but private sector engagement in government programs to improve reproductive, maternal, newborn, child, and adolescent health (RMNCH+A) services has been suboptimal. Through Vriddhi, JSI led an independent landscaping assessment in six USAID priority states to better understand private sector RMNCH+A service delivery and to identify opportunities for public-private partnership (PPP). In collaboration with public and private sector stakeholders, JSI used this evidence to inform and implement a scale up strategy with the potential to reach nearly 7,000 private practitioners in six states. These efforts will create a platform for crucial discussions between public and private sector stakeholders, spearheading efforts to improve private sector engagement and ultimately increasing RMNCH+A service quality and access through private sector providers.

This infographic highlights the process JSI used in implementing the initiative – from evidence generation, to knowledge sharing, to scale-up across six states in India. JSI India, 2018.
