Public–private partnerships (PPPs) enable the development of animal health services, policies and trade to a scale, quality or degree of geographic penetration that is unachievable by the public sector alone. Veterinary services can be improved across the globe by increasing their application.

With the support of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and in collaboration with the French Agricultural Research Centre for International Development (CIRAD), the OIE has produced a set of PPP guidelines, based on a large survey of public and private partners in its Members.

The OIE PPP Handbook has been conceived to be instrumental in the development of impactful and sustainable PPPs in the veterinary arena. It distils the knowledge and experience of PPP practitioners from across the world to give practical and informed advice on making PPPs work.
