Health PPPs and Pandemic By Thibaut Mourgues, Member Executive Committee, #WAPPP and Managing Partner at 4IP Infrastructure and Impact Investing
In a time of emergency such as what we are all currently experiencing, many people tend to believe that Public Private Partnerships (#PPPs) are not the most suitable tool to contribute to the fight against a #pandemic. The reason is that PPPs in the meaning of the World Bank usually refer to #infrastructureprojects that require years of #planning#design and #construction before providing any operational support. Could they be wrong? Could PPPs be effective also in time of #crisis?
