Panel Discussion

Public-Private Partnerships Healthcare Forum

Bringing together leaders from the public and private sectors in Singapore, as well as domestic and international academic experts, the Healthcare PPP Forum will address the importance of public-private partnerships in healthcare. Speakers will cover two large economic policy issues and implementation issues: elder care and the rise of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) in Singapore and China.

The financing challenge associated with elder care is based on the change in the ratio of workers to retirees. What had been ten workers became five and is now projected to be two per retiree in Singapore, and potentially, China.

NCDs are sweeping both the developed and developing world. The change of diets, lack of exercise and addictive nature of food products has led to an epidemic in obesity. This is impacting GDP growth and productivity globally.

The Forum’s aim is to identify the variety of conditions and applications for PPPs to provide financial and operational solutions to these issues.

The forum is co-sponsored by the National University of Singapore (NUS) Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, the NUS School of Public Health and the PPP Initiative Ltd.
