A Guide to Contracting for Health Services During the COVID-19 Pandemic

World Health Organization together with International Finance Corporation issued a new guide to contracting for health services during COVID-19 pandemic.
Government authorities seek to increase the capacity of health systems to respond to COVID-19 while maintaining access to essential health services. Drawing on private sector resources is critical as, in many countries, it is a dominant provider of health
services, including for the poor. One important tool for increasing capacity in this way is contracting. This primer offers a practical introduction to contracting the private sector in support of national COVID-19 responses. Its target audience is policymakers in low and middle-income countries (LMICs) that have, at this time, limited experience of using contracts for health services but are expected to do so in the emergency conditions created by COVID-19.
