Big-ticket healthcare public-private partnership (PPP) projects are coming to the Philippines this year, paving the way for needed hospital capacity in Metro Manila.

According to the PPP Center, it has readied the bidding for a new Philippine General Hospital (PGH) in Quezon City and a 300-bed PGH cancer centre in Manila. The two projects will be implemented by the University of the Philippines.
