dc.description<p>The Health in Africa<em> </em>initiative of the International Finance Corporation (IFC) is at odds with the World Bank Group&rsquo;s welcome commitment to universal and equitable health coverage and to shared prosperity. This paper argues that the $1bn initiative, which promotes private sector healthcare delivery, is extremely unlikely to deliver better health outcomes for poor people. The IFC&rsquo;s failure to measure the extent to which Health in Africa impacts<em> </em>on people living in poverty is inexcusable.</p> <p>Instead of investing in risky private sector solutions, the World Bank Group should focus on supporting African governments to expand publicly provided healthcare &ndash; a proven way to save millions of lives worldwide and to drive down inequality, abolish user fees and help governments to strengthen their capacities to regulate the private sector.&nbsp;</p>en
