Management and Sustainability: Essential Components of Contemporary Public Policy

Management and Sustainability: Essential Components of Contemporary Public Policy Moderator: Tim Williams This invited session is sponsored by the Task Force on Management and Sustainability in Family Planning and Reproductive Health: International and Domestic. This panel will focus on the issue of public/private collaboration in the delivery of Family Planning Services from both domestic and international perspectives. This is important because governments are increasingly relying on private providers to meet public service delivery obligations. The panel will address the following key issues: 1. What public strategies are being used to assure adequate services over time? 2. What are the conflicting issues related to the implementation of public strategies? 3. To what extent is management capacity considered in the selection and monitoring of performance of providers? 4. What strategies are available to reduce the risks of poor provider performance? 5. How can the public sector best ensure adequate coverage for potential users at all socio-economic levels? Important lessons from both domestic and international perspectives will be shared
