The webinar is part of the ISN-WHO “Toolkit for Dialysis in Low-resource Settings” and complements the ISN-WHO framework for developing dialysis in low-resource settings.

Establishing dialysis services in any setting can be challenging, especially when resources are limited. Public-private partnerships are one method of achieving the capital investment required. This webinar will focus on what such collaborations can accomplish, giving participants an in-depth understanding of the benefits and potential drawbacks and how to mitigate these.

Starting with a description of a successful PPP in 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 under discussion will include standards, costs, contracts, the scope of the service, ethics, management of uncontrolled growth, and third-party costs.
