Malaysia – Vamed Keen on PPPs. We’ll bet they are….
Healthcare and service provider Vamed Engineering GmbH & CoKG of Austria is “seriously exploring” opportunities to invest in Malaysia, said Andrea Raffaseder, a member of the Vamed executive board

She said Vamed was keen to set up a public-private partnership (PPP) with the Malaysian Government (as opposed to forming an alliance with a private sector entity) to kick start its investments in Malaysia.

“We will need more time to consider (whether to tie up with) the private sector in Malaysia,” said Raffaseder.

Austrian based Vamed “keen on partnerships” in Malaysia?

You bet they are! Where else are they going to get such cheap money?!

Is this an example of PPP’s gone mad!

But let us focus on just what’s happening in this discussion between an Austrian healthcare company and the government of Malaysia. The premise is, the Malaysian government is going to fund a PPP with an Austrian company, while its domestic players sit on the sideline?

I don’t think so.

We can easily list a handful of Malaysian companies that would object to a foreign company gaining access to low cost Malaysian money…………HK


India – State Bets Big on PPP in Healthcare Sector

The government of Gujarat is aiming high on the public private partnership (PPP) model for the healthcare sector in coming years as technology-driven medical services are expected to bring a makeover to the state’s image by making it a hub for medical tourism.

“There is no other way but to bring a PPP model for healthcare sector. The government sits on one of the largest infrastructures and a partnership with private players will bring in better staffing and managerial expertise,” said Vivek Desai, chairman, CII WR healthcare sub-committee and MD, Hosmac India Pvt Ltd.

I can’t think of a potentially more explosive social issue than the state using limited funds to finance medical tourism for a region’s elite.

Just last year a private hospital in India was ransacked for denying medical care to patients that were not part of the “elites.”

Also in 2010, patients at a rehabilitation hospital in Mexico were lined up along a wall and shot dead.

The issue of governments funding private healthcare facilities that are developed to serve a small slice of a population is fraught with complications: serious social complications.

Combining government funds with the elusive panacea of medical tourism is tinder box in play………..HK
