Discussing Public Private Partnerships at The World of Health Care

In today’s global health landscape, Public Private Partnerships, or PPPs, are continuosly being formed to tackle some of the most pressing challenges of our era, that indeed call for a multi-sectoral approach and sustained collaboration between all actors. Wemos is actively involved in the debate around the role of PPPs in achieving Universal Health Coverage. For example during the World of Health Care ‘congresstival’ that took place in Rotterdam on september 26th, where we co-organized a panel discussion on the role of PPPs in preventing epidemics.

The main outcome of the panel discussion:

Governments can not do it on their own, so PPPs are indispensable in for example preventing epidemics, but, without trust and regulations, PPPs are doomed to fail.


The World of Health Care is an annual congress of high-level international decision-makers in health. Apart from lectures, panel discussions and workshops, it offers networking and matchmaking facilities.
