Health Policy Brief: Streamlining Identification, Development, and Approval of PPP Projects for the Department of Health, the Republic of the Philippines

This policy brief presents the process of project identification, structuring, development, and approval of Public-Private Partnership (PPP) projects in the National Government and the Department of Health. It also discusses the salient points of recognized legal frameworks for PPPs, namely, Republic Act (RA) 7718 (the “Amended Build-Operate-and-Transfer (BOT) Law”), and the Executive Order (EO) No. 426 Revised Guidelines for Entering into Joint Venture Agreements between Government and Private Entities (the “Revised JV Guidelines”) issued by the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA). This will also propose how the Department of Health (DOH) facilities/entities should develop, structure, and facilitate approval of projects to ensure compliance to prevailing laws and frameworks and contribute to the attainment of the national health sector goals. In order for the DOH and its hospitals and other entities to ensure compliance to existing PPP frameworks, this brief proposes a five-point intervention to ensure proper PPP project identification, development, and approval, and to address issues related to PPP project management in the DOH.
