ISN Webinar: Pros and cons of public private partnership in developing dialysis services in resource limited settings
Growing dialysis services in any setting can be a challenge but especially so when resources are limited. One way of achieving the capital investment required to develop services is through public private partnership (PPP). This webinar will focus on what such partnerships can achieve, providing participants with an in depth understanding of both the benefits and the potential disadvantages and how to mitigate against these. Starting with a description of a successful PPP implementation from Georgia, the panel will share experiences from around the world and attempt to define PPP, recognizing that this definition will differ by jurisdiction. Key aspects to be discussed will include standards, costs, contracts, scope of the service (what should, must or must not be included), ethics, management of uncontrolled growth and third-party costs (e.g. out of pocket expenses).
