On June 14, 2021 the networking event of the Health Chapter was organized within the first annual congress of the World Association of PPP Units and PPP Professionals took place.
In the context of the global pandemic and massive demand for healthcare services, PPPs are becoming a real solution and driver for innovation, efficiency and quality of services delivered to people.
Distinguished experts representing different geographies and working for international finance organizations, national governments, investors, and private companies came together. They reflected upon the challenges of the current ecosystem of healthcare PPPs, obtained insights about national project pipelines, and discussed the next-generation PPPs.
The discussion built around SDGs and the concept of sustainable infrastructure, as they are, in fact, the destinations. SDG 3. Health and Well-being is an obvious one. However, the long-term solutions with “value for money” and “value for people” come when we strive at most minuscule for other SDGs like climate change, gender equality, responsible consumption and production.
Among the hottest topics discussed were also:
– KPIs to ensure the long-term success
– investor’s decision-making matrix for PPP project.
– current best practices, regional specifics and impediments to scaling healthcare PPPs
– the role and strategy of IFIs and national governments in supporting healthcare PPPs
– innovative solutions applied in healthcare PPPs
– importance of early market sounding for healthcare PPPs.
