Improving our hospitals is a monumental task, and we realize that the DOH cannot support and sustain all our efforts in this matter. Fortunately, we have found partners in the private sector who are willing to lend their helping hands in our endeavor. We have seen some success in this area and hope to forge more Public-Private Partnerships or PPPs for the enhancement of DOH Hospitals. Through these PPPs, we are able to benefit from private capital, expertise, efficiency and economy, all harnessed for improving health services. Such is our success and capabilities in this area that the Philippines was chosen by the United Nations Economic Council for Europe to be the site of its International Specialist Center for PPP in Health. We have already set up a PPP Unit in the Department to provide assistance to government facilities who wish to enter into PPPs. Needless to say, the DOH is ready for PPPs and the invitation is open to all of you to take part in this endeavor.
