2 Why they are important 2

3 Why they are ‘invisible’ No list exists International governance structures Politics External to health systems Scale Poorly functioning bureaucracies 3

4 Barriers to the research Lack of academic precedent Contested / contentious terminology Inaccessibility of information Confounding factors 4

5 What do we know? Absence of data Calls for further research Some limited, regional attempts at typology Lack of framework for research 5

6 What I want to know is…. What, where, when, why & how Origins, ownership, succession Operational structures, facilities Relationships with other actors Government – friend or foe? Funding & engagement 6

7 My approach 1.Scope out a typology 2.Select three case studies from one of the types identified 7

8 Proposed methodology Research publicly available materials, informal discussions Initial public survey Literature review Specific surveys of types identified Three case studies – interviews on site 8

9 Right now… Initial survey has 223 responses to date Showing a large lack of awareness – 65% Firming views on types, being: i.Vertical ii.Faith-based iii.Emergency response iv.Personality-based v.Specialists vi.Delivery innovators vii.Mining-related viii.Travelling health clinics / individuals 9
