Private Sector. ☐ Private sector organizations (for example, banks and financial organizations, data brokers or other commercial sources).
Private Sector. Private sector provision of health care is extremely limited. In Ashgabat, one or two private clinics have been established to attract expatriates and wealthy Turkmen. Apparently, it is extraordinarily difficult for a doctor to obtain a license to practice in the private sector while the cost of setting up a private practice is prohibitive. Under current economic conditions, the private sector is not expected to expand significantly in the near future. The private pharmaceutical sector is complicated. Three principal organizations are currently involved in the distribution of pharmaceuticals in Turkmenistan. Farmatsyia, the government pharmacy, is the largest organization with approximately 390 outlets; Inofarm is the commercial branch of Farmatsyia and is a part of the MOHMI. Giarat Corporation is a private, closely held Turkmen company that reportedly enjoys special privileges from the government. With government- owned pharmacies (Inofarm) as an excellent source of income for the MOHMI, the government has no immediate plans to privatize additional pharmacies. USAID/CAR decided not to proceed with a contraceptive social marketing project in Turkmenistan. The primary motivation for the decision was the absence of a pharmaceutical organization inTurkmenistan that would further the overall private sector development goals of an open, transparent, and free commercial marketplace. NGOs are beginning to develop and become viable private sector organizations. Organized jointly by Counterpart Consortium and UNDP, the first conference of Civil Society Organizations was held in December 1997 and drew 28 local NGOs from all over Turkmenistan. It marked an important beginning in helping to clarify the institutional and legal status of NGOs. It also gave the NGOs an opportunity to enhance their technical and funding capacities. In addition, the conference was a step forward in the development and recognition of the third sector in Turkmenistan. In only a short time, the Counterpart Consortium has identified and supported women’s NGOs: approximately five to six “established” women’s NGOs and 35 to 40 fledging NGOs. In addition, the Peace Corps is working with several women’s NGOs on reproductive health issues. The Soros Foundation is providing support to Ynam, a woman’s NGO that operates a “hotline for counseling women on family and legal issues. It is difficult for an NGO without some connection to the government to complete the registration process, although Turkm...

Private Sector can go beyond its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives, by ensuring recharge of springs and other water sources they use. (In India, any company that has a net worth of at least Rs 500 crore, a turnover of Rs 1,000 crore or a net profit of Rs 5 crore is obliged to spend 2% ofits average profits over the last three years on CSR)Way Forward• Proper recharge of springs do not just ensure continuous piped water supply, but also reduce expenses and carbon footprints involved in lift water schemes wherein water is pumped from rivers, lowering bills for suppliers and end-users.• It could also bring forth solutions for forest conservation and create jobs, curbing migration from the hills which will have benefits for Himalayan states and the communities without sacrificing conservation or development. 14) Sabhas we must Listen toContext• As India celebrates its 30th anniversary of the 1992 constitutional amendment (73rd Amendment Act) that gave legal backing to the Panchayati Raj system by making India's governance three tierthe Union, state and the local governments— one of the biggest contributions of the amendment has been the formalization of the gram sabha.What is Gram Sabha?• A gram sabha is an assembly of all eligible voters in a village and its formation is similar to a legislative assembly.• A gram sabha has legislative, supervisory and executive powers. It approves all village plans, supervises their implementation and monitors the elected panchayat members.• A village, with the gram sabha at the core of decision making, is mandated to make at least five five-year plans (covering education, employment, water,and sanitation) and is engaged in the certification and implementation of over 200 development schemes.• A gram sabha, just like Parliament, establishes standing committees to supervise government officials involved in the implementation of schemes.• For instance: Several villages have an all-women standing committee to certify water projects.Evolution• These village assemblies are a replay of India’s ancient village governance systems.• Mahatma Gandhi fiercely advocated for such a body to drive the self-reliant villages.• But B.R.Ambedkar resisted such a move. He said, “What is the village but a sink of localism, a den of ignorance, narrow-mindedness, and communalism?”• The Constituent Assembly stopped short of giving a legal backing to traditional village institutions as it kept local governance under the directive principles.• The 199...
Private Sector. The private sector is involvedthroughout the waste sector as generators of waste, providers of waste- related services, recyclers of waste and consumers of recycled materials – as well as providing an important interface to consumers. The involvement of the private sector i s therefore critical to the implementation of the National Waste Management Strategy. The NWMS 2020 provides a range of waste prevention measures that depend on collaboration with the private sector for implementation. Of general relevance to companies involved in productionand manufacture, is the promotion of waste prevention through cleaner production and industrial symbiosis, which government will support through the NCPC-SA. The Waste RDI Roadmap and TIA will play an important role in supporting private sector innovation, adoption of new technologies, and research. The DEFF will seek to work with the private sector to identify and remove unnecessary regulatory barriers to private sector innovation and adoption of new technologies. The DEFF is collaborating withthe private sector around priority wastes in relation to electronic waste, paper and packaging, lighting and tyres with a call for Industrial Waste Management Plans to be developed by the private sector, and which will be finalised and implemented during the NWMS 2020. The DEFF also intends to create an enabling policy environment and provide support to the private sector around opportunities for waste prevention and minimisation through product design,innovation and the adoption of new technologies and standards in relation to waste streams of concern due to their toxicity or volume. These include:• Organic waste in general, and food waste in particular;• Construction and demolition waste;• Absorbent hygiene products and other hazardous domestic wastes; and• Fly ash and bottom ash.Private sector companies, particularly in the recycling sector, play an important role in raising consumer awareness around waste. With the rolloutof a national waste awareness campaign and the introduction of extended producer responsibility in relation to priority wastes, there will be opportunities for government and the private sector to collaborate on raising public awareness, particularly in relation to recycling of priority wastes, food waste, and safe disposal of hazardous domestic wastes and absorbent hygiene products.
Private Sector. The government has put forth a number of projects to jump start its ethanol industry. A particularly significant one is a Ǟ7.5 million joint venture between Retrojam and the Brazilian firm Coimex, which operates as the supplier and imports hydrous ethanol feedstock from Brazil. Petrojam processes the feedstock into ethanol, which is then exported duty-free to the US.25 The joint project is slated to produce more than 151.4 million liters (40 million gallons) of ethanol annually. Another Ǟ10 million ethanol plant was commissioned in 2005 to produce fuel, using Brazilian feedstock, for export to the US. Petrojam also anticipates the 2006/2007 construction of a pilot plant for the introduction of ethanol into gasoline, with investments of just over Ǟ300,000 (JǞ 20 mil- lion). Outside of the government, the Jamaica Broilers Company has said it will begin con- struction on an ethanol dehydration plant in the country’s central region. The compa- ny, Jamaica’s leading poultry supplier, anticipates an initial capital expenditure of Ǟ17 million and hopes to be operational by May 2007. Dedini, a Brazilian ethanol technol- ogy company, will provide construction expertise and equipment for the plant, which will produce 227.1 million liters (60 million gallons) of fuel-grade ethanol per year. Jamaica Broilers also recently commissioned a cogeneration facility, which provides electricity for the company’s manufacturing projects and for sale to the Jamaica Rublic Service Company. The anticipated revenue for the ethanol plant is Ǟ74 million (J Ǟ4.5 billion), nearly half of the company’s reported revenue for 2005.26 Prepared by Garten RothkopfThe Jamaican government has decided to establish an Energy Fund as a limited liabil- ity company to function as a wholesaler for energy projects without getting directly involved in lending. The Fund will seek to raise Ǟ25 million over the next five years for energy efficiency and small-scale renewable energy projects. In addition to Ǟ300,000 (JǞ20 million) in local start-up financing, a Ǟ10 million loan will be acquired from the Petrocaribe Development Fund.27 The Fund seeks to develop a market for the financ- ing of these types of projects, including through private investment, and its operations will be outsourced to the Development Bank of Jamaica.181 A Blueprint for Green Energy in the Americas
Private Sector. As willingness to pay for health-related goods and services increases with Vietnam’s economic growth, leveraging the private sector will be crucial for a sustainable HIV response in Vietnam. Engaging with the private sector was stated very clearly in the updated 2020 HIV law1 and the new National Strategy for ending AIDS by 2030. With PEPFAR Vietnam’s support, the first ever Private Sector Engagement (PSE) plan has been developed and approved by the MOH in 2021, market-based thinking and human-centered design has enabled more than 40 organizations to offer new HIV commodity and services alternatives to those affected by HIV in ways that promote choice, self-reliance, and innovation. Partnerships and significant investment from multinational and local companies have also improved health outcomes for people most at risk of HIV and had a positive impact on the companies’ bottom line.In COP22, the team will continue to strengthen its collaboration with community representatives, CBOs and KP-led social enterprises and businesses in efforts to improve access to HIV prevention (including testing and PrEP) and treatment among KPs and generate sustainable services in the long run. The capacity of the networks of people living with HIV (VNP+), people who use drugs (VNPUD), MSM, and TG people in the 11 surge provinces will be enhanced to deliver comprehensive HIV-related activities, including: outreach, lay, and self-testing; social network testing; index partner testing; PrEP/nPEP; linkages to treatment services and public health cluster response.In addition, PEPFAR Vietnam will continue to work with private health providers to expand access to HIV testing, especially self-testing, PrEP/nPEP, and other HIV services. For example, PrEP services will be scaled through high quality one-stop-shops for MSM and transgender women in all 11 surge provinces. PEPFAR Vietnam continues to foster market entry for new HIV self-testing products and PrEP drugs (e.g CAB-LA) and continues to increase MOH capacity as an HIV commodity market manager through total market approach (TMA). PEPFAR Vietnam will support the first National Market Assessment on demand and supply of HIV-related services provided by the private sectors as the baseline to support rolling out the National PSE Plan. CBO and KP-led social enterprise and private clinic business capacity will be strengthened, and key private sector investors (such as pharmaceutical, diagnostics and medical supply companies) will continu...
