Public-private sector engagement is essential in the global health context as it harnesses the strengths of various stakeholders to create more resilient, effective, and sustainable solutions to address health challenges on a global scale. Collaboration between governments, NGOs, and multinational corporations is a key strategy in global health initiatives and can allow for coordinated responses to health crises and emergencies worldwide. In the current context of poly-crises becoming the new normal, with climate change intensifying health risks and placing added pressure on communities, there is an urgent need for a fresh approach to engagement. There is a call for a new model that aims to leverage private sector expertise and resources to accelerate joint action and deliver impactful solutions on a larger scale.
Closer cooperation and adaptation of individual efforts and interventions from public and private sectors can enhance risk reduction measures. Successful public-private engagement has come in the form of community health programmes to reduce disease burden, capacity building through training and education programmes, augmenting government capability, supporting climate resiliency, addressing misinformation, expanding primary health care, and overall health systems strengthening. Through fostering mutual understanding and collaboration, transparent communication and shared goals will facilitate productive partnerships.
