When observing countries’ responses to COVID-19, conclusions can be drawn on the modalities, successes, failures and governance challenges of partnerships between the public and private sectors during the pandemic. In some countries these partnerships have contributed substantially to the overall emergency response, albeit with gaps and weaknesses in their structures and processes. This document outlines learnings from various countries specifically in terms of their difference with typical public-private partnerships.

It is a useful document for policy makers. Click here to read the document.
