Public Private Partnership Hospital in Lesotho
The health care system in the Kingdom of Lesotho is over-burdened with demand consistently outstripping the state’s ability to provide vital health care services, particularly to poor people. In partnership with the World Bank, GPOBA supported the design and implementation of a public-private partnership for the replacement of the main public hospital in the country, Queen Elizabeth II Hospital. The GPOBA grant subsidized the cost of access to services for the residents of Maseru District, the capital city and home of nearly one-third of the country’s population.
