- 554 BlueStar/Social Franchising
Since 2008, MSIE has supported BlueStar clinics in the delivery of HIV/STI, Family Planning and safe abortion services. The BlueStar network, MSIE’s brand of social franchise model, is the cornerstone of MSIE’s strategy to expand access and provide choice while utilizing existing resources, providers and infrastructure. Under the BlueStar network, MSIE partners with 554 social franchisee member clinics located throughout Ethiopia[TC1] , in a bold move to rapidly scale up access to high-quality FP and SRH services through the private sector. Social franchising, a service delivery mechanism, involves contracting existing private providers (franchisees) to provide a range of services.
MSIE trains BlueStar providers on the delivery of SRH services, and provides supportive supervision and controls the quality of care at partner clinics.
To enhance the private clinics contribution and impact to the overall health goals of the country, MSIE builds the capacity of the member clinics through training on a range of SRH services, provides them with high-quality medical supplies and monitors the adherence to MSIE’s clinical standards. In 2015, 44 % of Couple Year of Protection (CYP) is from social franchising BlueStar Clinics.
