The final component of the EQUITY Framework is yielding public-private partnerships for equity. To meet the needs of the poor, countries must make the best use of all available public, private, donor, and NGO resources. A "total market approach" takes advantage of resources across sectors so that government and/or subsidized NGO, faith-based, and private sector services cater to the needs of the poor, while clients who can afford to pay for health services patronize the commercial sector. This brief presents examples from India, Peru, Mexico, Mozambique, and Rwanda.
