Leading international HIV/AIDS organizations have long acknowledged and encouraged greater private sector involvement in the collective response to HIV/AIDS. This module will assist governments (especially at the district level), NGO managers and business people to effectively participate in an ECR to HIV/AIDS. The module provides a broad overview of the private sector, its potential role(s) in an ECR to HIV/AIDS and some general approaches to engage private institutions. While partnering with the business sector offers numerous benefits, many issues arise due to differences in philosophies, missions, approaches and resources between businesses, NGOs and public sector institutions. This module provides information to assist personnel from all sectors in understanding and effectively managing these differences.
