Comprehensive course analysis
Who should attend
The course is aimed specifically at key public decision-makers and managers of healthcare PPPs also including oversight agencies and private operators, as well as officials from development agencies supporting PPP approaches.
About the course
Healthcare policy makers and managers across the world are increasingly considering public- private partnerships (PPP) as a way to deliver better and more efficient service to citizens. In previous years, Frankfurt School of Finance & Management offered an intensive one-week course on PPPs in healthcare.
The course development was sponsored by the International Finance Corporation, the private sector arm of the World Bank Group and supported by UK Aid. The course received highly appreciative feedback from participants from some 20 countries in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, Latin America and the Middle East as well officials from development aid agencies.
Benefits of the programme
Participants will discuss the potential downside of PPPs using case studies of hotly debated PPPs. Participants from developing economies are encouraged to “bring their own PPP” to the course and will receive feedback on their burning issues from faculty members as well as professional colleagues from other countries and agencies.
During five days participants will get the first hand on selecting projects in PPP realm and what services can be offered. We will also discuss on how PPP can fit into an existing health system of a country. Moreover, participants will also gain knowledge in project finance.
