India’s growth story has a large unfinished agenda, which can only be achieved if strategic partnerships are forged and nurtured. The chapter starts by describing four different categories of partners –the Government, bilateral organizations, multilateral organizations, and civil society. Some historical background and the current position for each category is described. Government outlays for health, family welfare and health research from the Third to the Eleventh Plan period as well as trends in bilateral donor assistance find a place in the chapter. Notable bilateralorganizations include DFID, USAID, and EU and included among multilateral organisations are the World Bank, UNFPA and other relevant UN agencies; their roles have been highlighted. The chapter concludes with five key recommendations regarding strengthening existing and forging new partnerships in the public and private sectors, respectively, redefining the role of government, ensuring the sustainability and institutionalization of successful initiatives and leveraging partnerships and working in synergy.
