National Consultation – Developing Strategic Roadmap to Engage Private Health Sector for Maternal, Neonatal, and Child Health


The national consultation on developing strategic roadmap to engage private health sector for maternal, neonatal and child health (MNCH) held on February 21, 2017, aimed at evidence-based discussions on engaging formal private sector health care providers in improving reach and quality of MNCH services in 30 high-priority districts across six intervention states. This is one of the three key activities led by JSI under project Vriddhi.

This report highlights the Vriddhi project's efforts to engage formal private sector healthcare providers in improving reach and quality of MNCH services. It also summarizes the lessons on and opportunities for private sector engagement in health shared by the experts and presents the way forward that emerged from policy makers, MNCH experts and implementers during the consultation.

The Scaling Up Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, Child and Adolescent Health (RMNCH+A) Interventions project, also known as “Vriddhi,” is a USAID-supported initiative to support the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, National Health Mission, and state governments to scale up high-impact RMNCH+A interventions in six states in Northern India.
