Examined how five South African interprofessional partnerships involved local communities and voluntary agencies in long-term health care planning and delivery, highlighting barriers to participation, comparing the views of four stakeholder groups, noting the costs and benefits of participation, and evaluating satisfaction, ownership, representation, contributions, and commitment. While stakeholders valued their partnerships, certain costs of participation affected satisfaction and commitment. (SM)
