Coordinated multi-sectoral responses that leverage the expertise and resources of the public and private sectors offer a promising model for addressing global health challenges. These models are increasing in use; however, the motivations, incentives, and needs for different sectors to engage in them are not always well understood. A better understanding of these factors can illuminate what is needed to develop effective models of multi-sectoral engagement based on defined value proposition. By bringing together cross sector views and examining illustrative examples, this workshop held by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine’s Forum on Public-Private Partnerships for Global Health and Safety (PPP Forum) will focus on the role of value proposition in models of multi-sectoral engagement in global health.

With a specific focus on industry engagement, the workshop will examine how stakeholders within industry define and measures value relative to global health, and, at the same time, how and why other sectors in the global health community engage with industry. Representatives from key global health organizations will present their approaches and policies for multi-sectoral engagement and challenges encountered when engineering successful models to operationalize this engagement. Several models of multi-sectoral partnerships and their unique value proposition will be discussed with the goal of exploring how they enable sectors to work towards the same goal while creating value for each partner. Additionally, the workshop will explore innovation in multi-sectoral engagement models—highlighting several models with innovative elements, and exploring where innovation is not happening and is most needed. This set of the discussions is intended to generate enthusiasm across sectors for more effective collaborative engagement in global health; to this end, the workshop will culminate in a facilitated discussion on actionable recommendations for the way forward.

Workshop Objectives:

  • To explore assumptions about industry's value proposition for global health engagement and the value proposition for the global health community to engage with industry.
  • To examine approaches and policies for multi-sectoral engagement and discuss challenges with engineering successful models.
  • To discuss how to create innovation in multi-sectoral engagement models for global health and inspire participants to accelerate progress in testing and building these models.
