Namibia Private Health Providers and Facilities Census Results

In 2010, SHOPS conducted a private sector assessment (PSA) in Namibia to identify key private sector actors and activities, and to develop strategies for leveraging this sector’s resources with public sector resources to increase and sustain access to priority health services. In response to several of the recommendations of the PSA, a census was commissioned by USAID Namibia in 2013 to examine the scale and geographic distribution of private health facilities and service providers. This census sheds light on several private health providers and facility characteristics, including infrastructure, available services and equipment, staffing levels, patient volume, payment mechanisms, and training priorities. The study also gauged interest in service expansion and partnering with the public health sector to address health needs.
