Drawing on relevant perspectives from both the private and public sectors, the Forum on Public–Private Partnerships for Global Health and Safety (PPP Forum) held a workshop on November 18–19, 2014, to explore motivations, challenges, and lessons learned during four stages of partnerships: engagement, formation, operations, and knowledge management. Workshop objectives were to engage in forward-looking multisectoral dialogue on the evolving models of partnerships for improving global health and safety; to explore opportunities for identifying and applying lessons learned from experiences of success and failure; and to discuss how the evolving model of partnerships and lessons learned can impact the future state of global health and safety, help meet global developmental challenges, and sustain improved outcomes. This publication summarizes the presentations and discussions from the workshop.
