Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) in health and education

Monday, April 27, 2015 - 10:00 to 17:30
Venue: 
Upper Meeting Room, LIDC, 36 Gordon Square
Speaker: 
Alicia Ely Yamin, Harvard School of Public Health.

The workshop provided an opportunity to engage in debate and extend the research agenda with collaborative partners. Participants included academics, policy makers and practitioners working around the question of PPPs. The keynote speaker was Alicia Ely Yamin from the Harvard School of Public Health.

The workshop focused around a number of key questions:

1. How have new partnerships between public, private and third sector development organisations considered aspects of women’s and girls’ rights in health and education initiatives?
2. How have these new partnerships impacted gender relations and aspects of power in the countries and communities in which they work?
3. What structures of audit and regulation are there between the three sectors (public/ private/ third sector) that put rights and equality more centrally?

Please contact Dr. Jasmine Gideon (j.gideon@bbk.ac.uk) for further details.
