A new PPP for dialysis in the Kyrgyz Republic has reached commercial and financial close.
This is the first PPP deal to be awarded in the country, and the first under its new PPP law.
The project was awarded to Fresenius Medical Services, the world's leading provider of products and services for patients with chronic kidney failure. It covers building, equipping and operating dialysis facilities across the country, providing essential dialysis services for 10 years so renal failure patients can live productive lives.
The project includes some innovations for dialysis PPP projects. For example, performance is centered on patient outcomes; Peritoneal Dialysis is included to increase access for children and for remote areas; there are smart mechanisms for demand sharing and scalability; kidney transplantation is promoted.
The deal has set the standard for PPP procedures and transaction documents in the Kyrgyz Republic. This will be important for the deals to follow.
Kalikova & Associates, IFC, RebelGroup International, and Dentons, provided assistance to the Ministry of Health of the Kyrgyz Republic in the preparation of the PPP project and selection of the private partner.
