The Government of Ukraine is looking to develop a specialist children's rehabilitation centre as a PPP.

Likely to be built in Odessa, the centre will help to alleviate paediatric suffering as a result of  the war with Russia, which has injured over 1,500 children since last February, with hundreds more killed. The facility will also look to help alleviate pre-existing paediatric care shortages, providing both telemedicine and physical health services.

The Ministry of Healthcare has enlisted the IFC to conduct the feasibility study, wanting a “sustainable and affordable” project using PPP.

According to the IFC, a group of Nordic donors have formed a foundation to provide a grant for the construction and operation of the facility.

The multilateral is now seeking a technical consultant to help bolster preparations. Responses are due 17 August 2023. The tender can be found by clicking here.
