The PPP Initiative in Vietnamese health sector

04/11/2016 11:59
At the request of the Deputy Minister of Health Prof. Le Tuan, key experts of the EU Health Facility made a presentation on PPP, its content and the options regarding its employment in the Vietnamese health sector in the Ministry of Health on August 6th, 2015. 

The decree of the government on Investment in the form of PPP was adopted in February 2015, and now the Government of Vietnam is not only keen to initiate the PPP projects in construction, but also in the health sector. The modernisation of the health technology, alongside an aging population and the increasing burden of non-communicable diseases, pose a great demand on health care service providers. This requires additional investment in infrastructure and equipment which many governments, even in developed countries, fail to meet. 

The search for private financing and optimization through more efficient service provision drives many to use PPP instruments to meet the demand. The presentation included further information on the experience with PPP in health sectors in the UK, Germany, Lesotho, Kyrgyz Republic and India (West Bengal), as well as raising the issues of service costs and payment modalities in PPP contracting. Chaired by the Vice Minister Prof. Le Tuan, representatives of different departments of the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Planning and Investment were also in attendance. EU-HF was further requested to organize additional activities to support MoH in promoting the PPP use in health care.
