Cambodia’s private healthcare sector is the first point of contact for most Cambodians within the health system and, as such, plays an important role in increasing access to health services. However, the current policy and regulatory environment is oriented more toward the public sector. HP+ collected perspectives from private health facility owners and managers to gain insight into how existing laws and regulations are implemented and perceived. Specifically, the brief explores laws and regulations pertaining to opening, operating, or transferring ownership of a private health facility, including accreditation, facility management, and quality assurance, as well as interaction between private facilities and government entities. These insights can be used by policy-makers to identify opportunities to improve engagement with private sector providers and strengthen the whole health system.
