Over the past decade, large scale global health initiatives have had great successes in supporting improved health outcomes in many countries. Each country is unique in building its approach to public health programming, but these partnerships are beginning to identify common principles toward working together. In fall 2012, a consultation cosponsored by amfAR, the Health Policy Project (HPP), International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) Africa Region, and Planned Parenthood Global brought together multi-disciplinary stakeholders to identify priorities and models for ensuring civil society engagement in health decision making. This report presents the findings of the consultation, examines civil society’s role in sustaining public health and transitioning to the country ownership model, and offers recommendations for civil society, governments, donors, and international development partners.
