Does privatisation of human services hurt outcomes?

NEP Poll 20 (July) - Does privatisation of human services hurt outcomes?

Our latest NEP poll concerns the controversial topic of how we want our human services delivered - by government or by the private sector?   

The NEP were asked for their opinions on this proposition: 

"For-profit provision of human services like health and education leads to poor client outcomes and high costs to government."
