Improving the Hospital System in the Republic of Moldova (2011)



This report examines the next steps in planning changes to the hospital system in the Republic of Moldova following the completion of a master planning exercise in 2009. The scale of the improvements required means that large investments need to be made but to make the most of these a number of other policy changes are needed. The report details these and identifies the steps that should be taken to ensure their successful implementation. These go beyond changes in hospitals and include changes in payment, regulatory, social care and primary care policy. The report sets out recommendations for the next steps in the reform process. Particular attention is given to the risks and benefits of using public private partnerships as a method of financing capital projects.
