A successful public-private partnership model (Inglês)

This brief is about preventing Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) of poverty. The control of onchocerciasis (river blindness) is widely acknowledged to be one of the major public health achievements of recent decades in Africa. Lessons from the implementation of the Onchocerciasis Control Programme (OCP) led to a stronger partnership approach in the African Programme for Onchocerciasis Control (APOC). A key contributor to the success of APOC is the diversity and depth of its public-private partnership, which has brought together communities, policymakers and health workers in endemic countries, UN organizations, multilateral and bilateral agencies, donors, private foundations, and non-governmental development organizations (NGDOs) to successfully deliver preventative medication. The World Health Organization (WHO) serves as the implementing agency, working with countries and NGDOs while the World Bank, working with other development partners, is the program’s fiscal agent. This brief contains the following headlines: The WHO APOC secretariat : playing many roles; Centralized financial management : the role of the World Bank and other Development partners; Sponsoring agencies : the evolving role of the UN system and multilateral partners; the Mectizan donation program : a groundbreaking effort by the private sector; and NGDOs : the backbone of the partnership.
