Regulation of Health Service Delivery in the Private Sector

Regulation of Health Service Delivery in the Private Sector: Challenges and Opportunities

Based on reviews of international peer-review papers and an analysis of Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS), this paper seeks to better understand the role of the private health sector in low-income and lower middle-income countries and its relationship with governments’ capacity to regulate and to act as stewards pf the health system. The findings from a global, self-administered, questionnaire survey in 15 LIC and 15 MIC-L reveal wide variations in political, administrative, and information constraints; policy concerns and priorities; and institutional capacities in health systems regulation.
