Public-Private Partnership (PPP) refers to forms of cooperation between public authorities and the world of business, which aim to ensure the funding, construction, renovation, management or maintenance of an infrastructure or the provision of a service. A main characteristic of PPP is the relatively long duration of the relationship.
In October 2011 DG SANCO launched through EAHC the tender for conducting the Health and Economic Analysis for an Evaluation of the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) in Health Care Delivery across EU. The report based on 15 case studies from different countries was created by ECORYS in August 2013.
The EXpert Panel on effective ways of investing in health (EXPH) was requested to answer several specific questions concerning the report by DG SANCO. The evaluation of the report by the Expert Panel and the answers to the questions of DG SANCO are presented in the document.
