The Namibian government has a long history of working with the private sector to deliver essential health services. However, the engagement between the Ministry of Health and Social Services (MOHSS) and private sector actors within the health sector is mostly through ad hoc interactions during national campaigns, planning processes and service delivery. Thus, there is a need for more-coordinated and more-strategic engagement to effectively leverage the private sector's capacity and strategically position the private sector’s role in advancing universal health coverage (UHC).
