Public-Private Partnership (PPP)

Public-private partnership (PPP) is a winning approach for ever-growing requirements of health organisations and one of the most promising models for financing successful healthcare innovations. By combining public needs with private-sector’s technical and financial capacity, PPPs have enabled to achieve common purposes or to undertake specific tasks, and to share risks, responsibilities, resources, competencies and benefits delivering innovative solutions to numerous healthcare sectors.

The PPP is a long-term contract between a public-sector authority and a private company, to provide a public asset or service, in which the private party is responsible for design, procurement, financing and maintenance operations assuming substantial financial, technical and operational risk, while benefitting from the potential of shared cost savings and receiving payment for the services provided.

Public entities teams up with the private sector providing the strength of its purchasing power, outlining goals for an optimal health system, and empowering private enterprise to innovate, build, maintain and manage the delivery of services over the term of the contract.
