As global rates of infectious disease continue to decline, rates of cancer and other non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are projected to continue rising in low- and middle-income countries (LMCs). Most LMCs are poorly prepared to grapple with the burden of NCDs -- expensive prevention and treatment options are often beyond the reach. One possible solution? Public-private partnerships (PPPs), long used by other sectors of the economy, have gained increasing attention as a viable means of promoting and funding important initiatives to address the increasing burden of cancer and other NCDs.
- Review state-of-the-art PPP implementation and suggest innovative models tailored to NCDs
- Compare partnership funding mechanisms used in other health areas
- Explore ways to engage civil society, foundations, the Government, and the private sector
