Ten steps toward achieving universal health coverage | Asian Development Blog

Ten steps toward achieving universal health coverage | Asian Development Blog | Global Health Policy | Scoop.it
When ADB recently hosted a conference on using information and communication technology (ICT) in universal health coverage, it was vital not to miss the opportunity to pin down practical steps that participants could commit to taking in their own workplace.

Engaging with the private sector – perspectives from the German development program | Devpolicy Blog from the Development Policy Centre | Global Health Policy | Scoop.it
Development agencies around the world, as in Australia, are increasing focus on expanding their engagement with the private sector, and developing policies and programs to promote effective public-private partnerships for development. I (Jonathan) recently had the opportunity to talk to two experts in the field from the German development sector who were visiting Canberra as guests of DFAT. Jonas Naguib is the Jakarta-based head of the Responsible and Inclusive Business Hub for the Southeast Asian Region of GIZ, a development service provider working on behalf of the German Government. Kim Nguyan Van, also from GIZ, leads a project that advises the German Government on economic policy and development issues. Here are the highlights of our conversation. Our discussions covered their experiences working on private sector development with GIZ, Germany’s policies on Public-Private Partnerships for Development, and managing the risks posed by these partnerships.

My Ten Development Policy Wishes for 2015 | Global Health Policy | Scoop.it
