Partnerships with the private sector play a critical role toward controlling the global HIV/AIDS epidemic. PEPFAR strategically focuses its public private partnerships (PPPs) on increasing programmatic impact and efficiency. PEPFAR’s PPP strategy includes finding opportunities where the private sector can complement PEPFAR goals and priorities by leveraging private sector market-driven approaches, distribution networks, marketing expertise, innovation, and technology to help achieve epidemic control.
Much like the private sector, PEPFAR is focused on accountability and scale. PEPFAR often looks to business models of private sector companies for ideas on how to most effectively and efficiently implement its programs. PPPs enable PEPFAR not only to share risks, resources, and rewards, but also to find greater efficiencies in program delivery.
PEPFAR develops, implements, and sustains various strategic global public private partnerships. In addition to finding efficiencies within the program, these partnerships demonstrate PEPFAR’s continued commitment to achieving epidemic control among children, adolescent girls and young women, and men. Several of these partnerships are highlighted below.
