HKP is harnessing the power of the private sector in support of the partnerships between the university hospitals.
Major medical companies such as Siemens Healthineers or Roche engage with the university hospitals as a cooperation partner providing substantial support for the joint healthcare project, for instance in cancer diagnosis and research, both through technical expertise – e.g. training, equipment, supplies – and through funding. This type of private sector involvement is a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) which creates a leverage effect for the public funds for development-related healthcare projects. Through the cooperation with private sector partners, university and referral hospitals in sub-Saharan Africa benefit from larger-scale projects and gain access to cutting-edge technologies and expertise which might otherwise be out of their reach.
