Project Description

According to ADB Technical Assistance Report, the TA aims to identify, assess, and develop capacity regarding health sector public–private partnerships (PPPs). ADB has worked with the government on broader PPP issues, including development of a revised PPP legal framework. The Ministry of Public Health has demonstrated particular interest in using PPPs to deliver public services. The proposed TA will complement the ongoing assistance with a particular focus on the health sector, with an extension to the education sector. The TA will be an integral part of the package to support the PPP agenda, and as such may lead to opportunities for ADB finance instruments, both sovereign and nonsovereign.The TA’s impact will be increased private sector engagement in the health sector for the delivery of efficient and quality services.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB

The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can learn more about the Accountability Mechanism and how to file a complaint at: http://www.adb.org/site/accountability-mechanism/main
