Private Sector Resources for Health in Dominica: A Rapid Mapping

A mapping exercise was carried out by SHOPS in September and October of 2012, with the goal of providing the Ministry of Health, USAID/EC, and other local stakeholders with a better understanding of both the range of services offered and number of providers operating in the private health sector. The exercise identified 33 clinical practices, which includes 29 physician practices, 3 nurse practices, and the private hospital. The results will enable the MOH to engage private health stakeholders in a dialogue on opportunities for improved cooperation between the sectors, facilitating public-private partnerships as appropriate to sustain Dominica’s HIV response and strengthen the overall health system. This report, and the provider registry resulting from the mapping work, are important steps toward documenting the sector in greater detail.
