ACCESS Health International completed the following comparative case study of mobile medical units (MMUs) in Bihar and Madhya Pradesh. The case study analyzes the programs’ operations through interviews with public and private partners, field visits, and secondary research to better understand how these programs function.

The past decade has seen the emergence of Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) in India as a strategy to meet the healthcare needs of the nation. Partnerships in the primary, secondary, and tertiary sector involve multiple stakeholders and cover a range of health services.

This case study focuses on the monitoring and evaluation mechanisms of the program, and provides recommendations to strengthen these mechanisms and inform future PPPs.
