Board: Board on Global Health

The Forum on Public-Private Partnerships for Global Health and Safety (PPP Forum) fosters a collaborative community of multisectoral leaders from business, government, foundations, humanitarian and professional organizations, academia, and civil society to leverage the strengths of multiple sectors and disciplines to yield benefits for global health and safety. The PPP Forum is premised on the understanding that partnerships among these stakeholders can facilitate dialogue and knowledge exchange; utilize innovation and technological and process efficiencies; and synergistically advance humanitarian, international development, and global health interests. The U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine provides a neutral evidence-based platform through which the PPP Forum is convened.

The PPP Forum will build on the content and discussions from the June 23-24 workshop, Engaging the Private Sector and Developing Partnerships to Advance Health and the SDGs, with a complementary Part II Workshop on October 27-28, 2016.The objectives of the Part II Workshop are to better understand the perspectives on PPPs from stakeholders critical to planning for and implementing the SDGs; to explore how PPPs can advance the social, environmental, and economic development agenda of countries and facilitate multisectoral dialogue on what is and is not working to make progress; and to identify elements critical to developing both the trust and enabling environment needed for effective PPPs for health. In June, the PPP Forum explored the development of a potential framework for PPPs in health and will continue discussions on the framework in October. For more information on the Part I Workshop held in June 2016 in New York please access the brief summary.

The two-day public workshop has been planned by an ad hoc expert committee and the roster is posted to this page. The intended audience is the PPP Forum members and the organizations they represent, other public and private entities that have participated in or are considering collaboration across sectors to further global health and safety, and academics and researchers across multiple disciplines who are focused on understanding the value proposition and impact of various models of public-private partnerships for developing partnerships to advance health and the SDGs.

This meeting is free and open to the public, but registration is required. Both days of the meeting will be webcast.
