The goals and objectives of the PSE are: To expand access to and choice of health services by: engaging primary and community level providers, leveraging private sector capacity to fill public health gaps and developing a policy and regulatory environment that encourages private sector participation.


To improve the quality of healthcare provided by the private sector by: building private sector capacity through public-sector in-service trainings, leveraging the role of county health teams, and strengthening coordination with private sector bodies on standards and compliance.


To enhance financial protection by doing the following: supporting healthcare for all, including the private sector in health financing schemes. To create an enabling environment for the PSE by: establishing the PSE team in the MOH as a unit or as part of an existing unit, and operationalizing the PSE. The plan is for MOH to work with HFL in achieving all these goals.
