Private sector engagement has received increasing focus in development discourse and practice in recent years, including with regard to sexual and reproductive health. Engagement with the private sector in sexual and reproductive health takes a variety of forms and involves a diverse set of stakeholders, ranging from global corporations to traditional community‑based service providers.
This Countdown 2030 Europe report takes a look at modalities of donor support for engagement of the private sector in sexual and reproductive health across key areas, including finance, product development and manufacturing, procurement, market planning and development, supply chain, and service delivery. It discusses challenges and opportunities for private sector engagement in sexual and reproductive health and presents recommendations for future advocacy directions with donors.
