Private Provision in its Institutional Context

Published on 1 January 2004

National and international discussions about private provision of health and other social services in low and middle-income countries are often highly polarised debates between supporters of opposing views about ideal social arrangements. These views bear little relation to the experiences of service users and providers in many countries. The gap between the languages of policy debate and local experience has impeded the development of practical ways to deal with present realities.
