Accelerating private sector engagement: SHOPS Plus end-of-project series

As part of final dissemination activities, the project hosted a four-part series of capstone webinars reflecting on global investments and field programs with USAID Missions. The first three webinars highlighted achievements and lessons learned by the project over its six-year life. They covered broad thematic areas that affect access to health services through the private sector: stewardship, financing, and health markets. In the final webinar, we reflected on the project’s results, their implications, and what the future holds.
