On 28 October, Access Accelerated and the World Bank hosted a webinar focused on the role of public-private partnerships in strengthening primary care systems against the backdrop of a global pandemic. The webinar explored how to accelerate the adoption of an integrated service delivery model in low- and middle-income countries. Our speakers included:


  • Dr. James Headen Pfitzer, Director of Access Accelerated
  • Sarbani Chakraborty, Senior Health Systems Strategy Leader and Lead for Health Systems Capacity at Roche
  • Andreas Seiter, Global Lead for Private Sector in the World Bank’s Health, Nutrition and Population Global Practice
  • Amparo Elena Gordillo-Tobar, Senior Health Economist and Coordinator at the World Bank


The conversation, moderated by Miriam Schneidmam of the World Bank and Titta Rosvall-Puplett of Bristol Myers Squibb, highlighted how on-the-ground programs have pivoted to address the realities of the pandemic and embrace both digital tools and community-led solutions to deliver NCD care to patients.
