The state of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, has announced plans to carry out feasibility studies for the development of a image diagnostic PPP project.
The objective is to provide image diagnostic services in the state health service network. The International Finance Corporation (IFC) had submitted a preliminary proposal for the preparation of feasibility studies for the project.
Diagnostic imaging refers to technology that looks inside the body to help determine the causes of an injury or illness and ensure that a diagnosis is accurate. It focuses upon creating images of the body, its organs, and other internal structures.
This is the second PPP project with such an object in Brazil. Bahia signed in early 2015 a PPP project to support diagnostic imaging in the state health service network. This project was organized by BNDES and the IFC.
We have recently reported that Foz do Iguaçu, the Brazilian city on the border of the Iguaçu Falls, has plans to develop a health public private partnership (PPP) project. It would involve the development and operation of several assets.
