The Ethiopia Private Health Sector Program (PHSP)
Banyan Global worked with Abt Associates to implement PHSP, an associate award under the United States Agency for International Development’s (USAID) Health Systems 20/20. PHSP supported the sustainable provision of reproductive health, HIV and AIDS, and tuberculosis services in the private sector in Ethiopia. In addition to providing clinical training and operational support to increase the provision and effective delivery of services, the project built the private sector’s capacity to operate profitable enterprises, supporting a Development Credit Authority health-sector loan portfolio guarantee with technical assistance, strengthening business and public-private linkages in the private sector, and improving the capacity of provider associations to meet the needs of their private practice members. Banyan Global worked to increase access to finance for private health providers; build the management capacity of clinics with a focus on financial management, human resource management, and operations management; strengthen and foster business linkages and public-private partnerships through trade fairs; and increase the capacity of provider associations to sustainably meet the needs of their private practice members.
