Public-private partnerships are being encouraged as a part of the comprehensive development framework. We assessed the work profiles of registered non-governmental organizations (NGO) working on health-related activities in Udaipur district, Rajasthan, India by conducting a 16-item pretested questionnaire study. The questions related to various facets of their activities, their scope and process of evaluation. Of the 66 NGOs selected, most (28 [42%]) were working among the general population and had a partnership with a public entity (43 [65.1%]). The running capital of most NGOs (27 [41%]) was `100 000-2 000 000. Only 25 (38%) had a monitoring system to evaluate their progress. There are immense opportunities for NGOs in the health sector in Udaipur. The need of the hour is to encourage various public and private institutions to work together to achieve excellence in healthcare and service delivery.
