Govt, ADB sign MoU to support health care under PPP

BSS, Dhaka

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the government of Bangladesh yesterday signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to jointly promote public-private partnership (PPP) projects in the country’s health care sector.

Diagnostics and dialysis services would be the priority area to support under the PPP arrangement, said a press release.

Under the MOU, ADB’s Office of Public-Private Partnership will identify, prepare, and implement projects under PPP arrangements.

The tripartite MOU was signed at a ceremony in the capital by Additional Director General of health services (Administration) Professor Dr Nasima Sultana, Director General of Bangladesh PPP Authority (PPPA) M Abul Bashar and ADB Country Director for Bangladesh Manmohan Parkash.

Secretary of the Health Services Division of Ministry of Health and Family Welfare M Ashadul Islam presided over the programme while Chief Executive Officer of PPPA M Alkama Siddiqui was present.

“PPPs have the potential to unlock greater private sector investments and efficiencies to complement ongoing government initiatives to improve the quality and affordability of health care in Bangladesh,” said Parkash.

According to ADB, public health in Bangladesh has improved significantly in recent decades due to high immunization, reduced infant and maternal mortality, and lower fertility rates.
