Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Health is set to launch two primary health centre projects under the public-private partnership (PPP) model to procure a total of 224 primary health centres, according to the National Centre for Privatisation & PPP (NCP). 

The centres will be procured under 20-year-plus Design-Build-Finance-Operate-Maintain (DBFOM) contracts.

One tender will be for 74 primary healthcare centres across Riyadh, as well as Eastern and Western regions, and is slated to be issued in April 2023 while the second tender will be for 150 centres across Qassim, Hail and Madinah regions. However, the tender date was not given.

The Ministry of Health is also planning to offer three maternity and children hospital projects under the PPP model in the third quarter of this year.
