The Private Sector & Family Planning

Private sector is defined as non-state market actors with direct, supporting, or enabling functions aimed at increasing access, availability and use of FP products and services.  These include a wide range of actors:  commercial for-profit, faith-based, and non-profit; US-based, local and international; formal and informal sectors, including traditional and community health providers.

While this a relatively broad definition, the commercial for-profit, and health provider segments (outside of faith-based and non-profit / SMO) as well as other actors noted above would benefit from more clear inclusion and valuation associated with their role in the FP equation.

The Private Sector Community at ICFP 2021

This is the Private Sector Subcommittee’s inaugural year.

This new sub-committee will assemble and brainstorm opportunities for a pre-ICFP conference meeting, to establish panels and identify & showcase best practices from the private sector in service delivery, product innovation and FP inclusion in health insurance benefits.   We will seek opportunities to invite participation by private sector leaders such as midwives from Indonesia. 

Additionally the private sector subcommittee will generate engagement around challenges that are more unique to private sector actors and increase their understanding of the other stakeholder groups.

At-a-Glance

ICFP Private Sector Subcommittee

The private sector subcommittee was formally established in January 2020 with the goal of planning and generating activities for ICFP 2021 which will increase the strategic visibility and engagement of the private sector.   The subcommittee was proposed to the ICFP Core Organizing Group in late 2019 and subsequently approved.
The work of this new subcommittee is important as forecasts of stagnating (or declining) donor funding for family planning (FP) raises concerns about the future and triggers more focus on the private sector’s ability to meet users’ needs.  While the topic of sexual and reproductive health is highly visible and demand is growing, there is a need to mobilize private sector resources and participation.
Historical participation of large innovator manufacturers and social marketing organizations at ICFP is well-recognized and valued. This sub-committee will strive to engage with those actors as well as additional segments of the private sector, to increase the reach to organizations that play a significant and growing role in enabling and providing family planning related services and products.  Examples of organizations that we would seek to engage include midwifery associations, independent social enterprises and clinics, private health insurance providers and employer groups. 
The Private Sector Subcommittee’s overall goal is to increase the strategic visibility and participation of the private sector, through advanced planning of events and efforts for the conference in Pattaya City, February 1-4, 2021.
Organizations represented on the subcommittee:
Abt Associates, Avenir Health, Bayer, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Bill & Melinda Gates Institute. Danish Family Planning Association, FHI360, FP2020, Global Affairs Canada, IntraHealth, IPPF, Jhpiego, John Snow Incorporated, Marie Stopes International, Medicines360, Palladium, PATH, Pathfinder International, Pfizer, Population Council, Population Services International, Reproductive Health Supplies Coalition (RHSC), The William Davidson Institute at the University of Michigan (WDI), UNFPA, UN Foundation, USAID
