Private Sector Options for Health Care

This document summarizes the evidence from key review articles for private sector success in providing health care services in low-income countries. While the strength of the evidence for contracting out is weak, contracting out can increase access to services even in remote areas. Evidence for franchising, efficiency of contracted services, and direct provider or client payments is also weak, but all seem to offer some possibility of future success.
