The aim of the study was to identify, how can governments reap the potential benefits of public private partnerships (PPPs) in the provision of health service delivery? Private sector involvement in the provision of public goods is long-standing, often relying on franchises or concessions. More recently. public-private partnerships (PPPs) have risen in prominence, promising innovative solutions and a better allocation of inputs than traditional procurement with separate concessions. However public-private partnerships (PPPs) are not without risks with the outcome depending on the identification of the most efficient bidder, the risk sharing between the public and private sector and the design of the contractual relationship. Furthermore, public private partnerships (PPPs), particularly when they are used to circumvent budgetary constraints, present risks to government budgets by creating large contingent liabilities. Drawing on a discussion of the economics of public-private partnerships (PPPs) in relation to health service delivery and questionnaire responses, synthetic indicators are used to assess how well-suited policy frameworks are to benefit from public-private partnerships (PPPs). The results show marked heterogeneity across countries, suggesting there is scope to improve performance and gain expertise by considering other countries experiences.
