Main motivation to join PPPHealth4All for the Faculty of Law of the University of Niš is to support Serbian researchers interested in topics around healthcare PPPs and to gain substantial knowledge in this regard in order to develop it further in academic discourse and to finally apply it in practice.
Faculty of Law of the University of Niš is interested in development and drafting of regulatory documents in the form of soft law, such as:
-model laws dealing with PPP in healthcare sector;
– guidelines for contract drafting;
-model agreements for different types and objects of PPP in healthcare sectors (hospitals, rehabilitation facilites, PPP in primary, secondary and tertiary healthcare)
-creating and implementing training programmes for interested parties
Serbia is on the way to explore healthcare PPPs and has already developed the following legislation in this regard:
1. LAW ON PUBLIC-PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP AND CONCESSIONS
(“Off. Herald of RS”, Nos. 88/2011, 15/2016 and 104/2016)
2. LAW ON PUBLIC PROCUREMENT
(“Off. Herald of RS”, Nos. 124/2012, 14/2015 and 68/2015)
3. LAW ON INVESTMENTS
(“Off. Herald of RS”, Nos. 89/2015 and 95/2018)
4. Law o Healthcare Regulation (“Off. Herald of Rs”, Nos. 25/2019)
5. Law on Health Insurance (“Off. Herald of Rs”, Nos. 25/2019)
We wishing the Faculty of Law, the University of Niš a fruitful cooperation with members of the PPPHealth4All ecosystem and hope that this would result in a pipeline of healthcare PPP projects in Serbia.
