    (Kampala International University. School of Health science, 2022-11) Afrah Imadaldeen Ibrahim Jadalrb
    The purpose of the study was to establish the effect of public-private partnership on health service delivery particularly in Mogadishu, Somalia. The objectives of the study were to; examine the relationship between leases and Affermage Contracts and health service delivery in Mogadishu-Somalia, establish the relationship between full divestiture and health service delivery in Mogadishu-Somalia and examine the relationship between civil Works and Service Contracts and health service delivery in Mogadishu-Somalia. This study used a correlational research design to assess the respondents’ views towards public-private partnership and health service delivery in Mogadishu, Somalia. The researcher chose this research design in order to be able to determine the relationship between Public Private Partnership and Health Service Delivery in Mogadishu, Somalia. The study was conducted from Mogadishu in Somalia. The total population of Mogadishu was 2,587,183 inhabitants. However, there were approximately 136 health centers whereby 3 are public health centers and 133 are private health centers. The study Population comprised 240 participants and these included; 5 Mogadishu Local Government delegates, 5 Officials from Ministry of Health, Mogadishu, 20 Health workers and 210 Patients who were accessible. The coded data were entered into the Computer, checked and statistically analyzed using the Statistical Package for Social Scientists (SPSS) software package to generate descriptive and inferential statistics. From the study findings, a lease contract the private sector retains the revenue and pays a lease fee to the hospital or health facility was most prominent. This implies that leases and Affermage Contracts are vital in public private partnerships which also influence the delivery of health services to the people within communities. The study concludes that in the affermage/lease type of arrangement an operator (the leaseholder) is responsible for operating and maintaining the health facility (that already exists) and services, but generally, the operator is not required to make any large investment. The study recommends that most of the time in PPP, the private sectors are considered by the government as the underdogs and that they ought to be highly regulated. Contrary to this, the private sector should be allowed to enjoy its liberties, as this would ensure that the sector remains objective and is not distracted from its course. This can be done by allowing the private sector to be the formulator of the policies which affect them most.

Data was collected from primary and secondary sources using questionnaires and interviews. The data was presented in tabular form, pie charts and bar graphs with frequencies and percentages. The study concluded that infrastructure created through PPP can improve the quality and quantity of basic infrastructure such as the provision of water and its treatment, energy supply and transportation. In addition the process can be widely applied to a variety of public services such as hospitals, schools, prisons and government accommodation. There should be macro-prudential review such that the totality of a government’s PPP obligations, including contingent liabilities and ripple effects through public lenders, are visible. This should be carried out by the ministry of finance (or similar), as is done with traditional public borrowing and debt limits. At the level of the ministry of health, current year spending and long term liabilities for PPP contracts should also be included in the total health programme spending limits. PPPs should be on the public balance sheet and accounts, except for those variants with a very substantial risk transfer (probably including demand risk).
