Sustainable Health Policies Will Drive Public-Private Partnership In Health Care, Says Industry


“The government should not come back to the private sectors to control our operations, our way of managing the hospitals because we are pretty independent. In order for this to sustain and help in the PPP, we should be able to sustain,” APHM president Dr Kuljit Singh said in the online panel discussion.

“We are not saying that we are going for over-profits or manage it to a level that can kill the entire ecosystem. We are willing to help out.”

Dr Kuljit also noted that the private health care facilities, including general practitioners (GPs), built the ecosystem without much support from the government. 

“But then there shouldn’t be a control. Sometimes they tend to control the private sector, but they must remember that the private hospitals and private general practitioners are all on our own.”

At the same time, the medical groups also stated that the health care sector is gearing up for a sustained fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.
