What can education learn from health public-private partnerships (PPPs)?
November 9, 2014 Editor 0While public-private partnerships (PPP) have been a central feature of many governments’ attempts to improve access to health services and improve health outcomes for their citizens, education PPPs are still in their infancy. Given the daunting challenges education is facing globally in terms of increasing access, improving learning outcomes, and making curricula relevant to the needs of society and the marketplace, interest in education PPPs has been mounting recently. Increasing access in early childhood education, improving learning outcomes in K-12, or making TVET more attractive to the youth and more relevant to employers are good examples where education PPPs can be one of the tools in providing a solution.As a result, we are seeing a growing number of governments and donors supporting them. But the prevalence of PPPs in education still pales in comparison to that of health and other sectors. So what are the lessons the education sector can learn from the health sector about PPPs?
- Policies and regulations within the sector matter, but countries must look across sectors to identify and remove constraints
- Transaction support and capacity building ensures governments can achieve their goals
- Investment in the private sector is critical for scalability
- New program offers blueprint and ‘Golden Rules’ for increasing sustainable electricity in developing countries
- Trends in Private Participation in Infrastructure
- Connectivity equals opportunity: PPPs narrow the “broadband gap”
- The relevance of public-private partnerships in coopetition: empirical evidence from the tourism sector
