dc.description.abstract The use of Public Private Partnership in the delivery of health services has gained acceptance in many developing countries including Tanzania. The motive has been to facilitate the delivery of health services to majority of people. Despite the clear motive, there is however inadequate evidence to establish the extent that the model has been effective in health services provision in Tanzania. In this case, this study explored the effectiveness of public private partnership in provision of health services in Tanzania, drawing from Mpwapwa District Council where a case study design was used to execute this study. This study employed simple random and purposive sampling techniques. A total of 100 respondents who comprised council health management team, council management team, health workers and health beneficiaries were selected to constitute the sample for the study. Both primary and secondary data collection methods were used. Due to the nature of data in this study, qualitative data analysis methods were used along some descriptive statistics. The findings showed that the delivery of health services through PPP in Mpwapwa had improved specifically in mother and child health care delivery as well as the poor elderly. These are the groups under PPP, which have been exempted from medical fees at St. Luke Hospital. The study established the impact of this in order to reduce maternal and child death rates. Generally, the study found that public private partnership is effective in provision of better health services in Mpwapwa District Council.. It is therefore recommended that the government should encourage partnership with different stakeholders in provision of medical equipment, financial, infrastructure and human resources in Hospitals. en_US
