New country case studies available! Private sector engagement, COVID-19 in Rwanda and Kenya
WHO calls on national governments everywhere to adopt a whole-of-government and whole-of-society approach in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. Reducing the further spread of COVID-19 and mitigating its impact should be a top priority for Heads of State and Governments. The response should be coordinated with actors in the private sector and civil society.
WHO has developed an Action Plan to help governments with their efforts to engage the private sector as part of a whole of society response to the pandemic and also to support governments efforts to engage the private sector to help maintain essential health services. The Action Plan is organised around five areas: space, staff, stuff, systems and supply side financing. WHO has developed two country case studies to showcase how private sector engagement for COVID-19 has played out in Rwanda and Kenya, following the framework of the Action Plan.
