Exploring Lessons Learned from Public-Private Partnerships to Improve Global Health and Safety—A Workshop
On November 18-19, 2014, the IOM Forum on Public-Private Partnerships for Global Health and Safety will hold a workshop on Exploring Lessons Learned from Public-Private Partnerships to Improve Global Health and Safety. The workshop objectives are:
- To engage in forward-looking multi-sectoral dialogue around the evolving model of public-private partnerships (PPPs) for improving global health and safety
- To explore opportunities for identifying and applying lessons learned and best practices for PPPs from experiences of success and failure
- To discuss how the evolving model of PPPs and lessons learned can impact the future state of global health and safety, help meet global developmental challenges, and sustain improved outcomes
This two-day public workshop will be planned by ad hoc committee. Workshop presentations and discussions will draw from relevant perspectives from both the private and public sectors and experiences of established partnerships in global health and safety, while also exploring opportunities for innovation in partnerships. The intended audience for this workshop is the Forum on Public-Private Partnerships for Global Health and Safety members and the organizations that they represent as well as other public and private entities that have participated in or are considering collaboration across sectors to further global health and safety. Additionally, this workshop would benefit academics across multiple disciplines who are focused on understanding the value proposition and impact of partnerships. The workshop is free and open to the public but advanced registration is required. The workshop will be globally webcast.
