The Private Sector Health Alliance of Nigeria seeks to transform healthcare in the country through facilitating high impact investments in four priority areas:

  • To unlock the market potential of the health sector by addressing market failures, defragmenting the private sector and shaping health markets to create a more attractive health investment landscape.
  • To facilitate impact investments in the most promising innovative projects from the health innovation market place – to enable them to achieve scale and create jobs.
  • To originate and execute commercially viable investments in critical segments of the health sector that benefit underserved segments.
  • To improve the quality of care in eligible facilities in the country.

The Alliance is facilitating impact investments and market shaping engagements in critical segments of the healthcare value chain that reach the ‘bottom of the pyramid’ such as the exploratory creation and coordination of Private Provider Networks and the formation of maternal and neonatal quality improvement collaborative networks in nearly 200 public and private facilities in several States across the country – in partnership with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Harnessing Non-State Actors for better Health for the Poor (HANSHEP).

The private sector offers a huge potential to accelerate progress towards attaining the health SDGs by 2030 and beyond given its assets, resources and capabilities.
