To address the growing chronic kidney related illness in Bangladesh, GOB intends to pilot a Dialysis PPP Project involving approximately 150 hemodialysis stations across up to three different hospital sites in the capital city, Dhaka (“the Pilot Dialysis Project” or the “Pilot”). The Government of Bangladesh (“GOB”), through the Directorate General Health Services (“DGHS”) and the Health Services Division (“HSD”) of the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (“MOHFW”), is receiving Technical Assistance from the Asia Pacific Project Preparation Facility (“AP3F”).
The TA is intended to support in capacity augmentation at DGHS and HSD, creation of a PPP cell and for the establishment of a sustainable model in Bangladesh to identify, prepare, and implement healthcare PPP projects with private sector investments and participations (the “Programme”). GOB considers the delivery of high-quality clinical services such as dialysis, pathology/labs and imaging as immediate priority areas for potential private sector interventions.
The Office of Public Private Partnership (“OPPP”) at Asian Development Bank (“ADB”) is assisting GOB in implementing the Programme. The first of such consultant procurement phases and this Terms of Reference (“TOR”) relates to preparation/implementation of a new hemodialysis project under PPP modality and restructuring of an existing dialysis PPP project.
