Health Systems Strengthening through Private Sector Engagement

Lessons learned from malaria elimination

The lessons learned by GEMS extend beyond malaria elimination and touch on wider issues of public-private partnerships, health systems strengthening, quality of care, understanding and engaging communities, effective disease surveillance, and working towards sustainability and government oversight of private sector engagement.

The project was designed to adapt in response to learning and data, which was constantly necessary.
