Health is a human right

This concept is inherent in the Sustainable Development Agenda's commitment to leave "no one behind". The provision of healthcare infrastructure and services is a massive obligation for both governments and the private sector.

Price Tag

Some estimates place the cumulative expenditure on healthcare infrastructure over the last decade to be over $3.6 trillion. And when adding services, that estimate reaches $68.1 trillion. The UN estimates that the gap in financing to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) stands at $ 2.5 trillion per year in developing countries alone. Most countries are lagging behind on achievement of health-related SDG. 3. If urgent and consolidated actions are not taken, the SDG. 3 will be not achieved by 2030.

Failure to Deliver

Meanwhile, many global citizens still lack access to even the most basic healthcare services and the SDGs call on governments to serve even more citizens, help those that are poor and most at risk, and take significant steps toward providing true, universal access to care - all of which would add to the already hefty price tag.

Call for Action

The WHO boldly states that the (SDGs) can be realized only’through strong commitments’ to global partnerships between governments, the private sector and civil society. Public - private partnerships (PPP) have been identified in SDG. 17 as a preferred vehicle for implementation given the lack of resources of governments. Yet PPPs model is complicated and experiences as many failures as successes.

We see our mission in helping design sustainable and people-centered PPP healthcare projects: projects that are economically sustainable, socially inclusive, and environmentally beneficial.

How we do it?

Principles of Sustainable Healthcare PPPs

People-Centred Healthcare
The person/patient is the single most important stakeholder. Universal Health Coverage puts the patient in the centre of everything. Improving health and quality of life for patients is the ultimate goal of health systems as it is the patient who requires the medical intervention or who may be searching for information related to health. The rights of the patient have to be respected and services have to meet their needs whilst also being affordable.
Support Sustainability and Societal Well-Being
Societal well-being and sustainability should be taken into consideration during healthcare PPP projects development and implementation.
Do No Harm
Development and implementation of healthcare PPPs should respect human rights and should not cause harm to individuals or communities. Particular care should be given to preventing harm to vulnerable individuals or groups.
Be Inclusive
PPP partners should support inclusion and equity. They should strive to ensure that the benefits of PPP healthcare projects are broadly accessible.
Ensure Transparency
Local communities and Individuals should be informed about the key elements of healthcare PPP projects. Decisions made should be explainable to impacted individuals.
