The Joint Centre for Global Infrastructure Policy
The Joint Centre for Global Infrastructure Policy is an ambitious new Joint Centre to be established by the PPP Initiative and the Bartlett Faculty of the Built Environment at University College London. Motivated by a desire to combine the Bartlett’s world-renowned emphasis on interdisciplinary study with the PPP Initiative’s economics-driven approach to healthcare issues, the Joint Centre will develop a new healthcare curriculum for graduate and executive education courses emphasizing the frameworks, skills, motivations and incentives that underpin successful healthcare PPPs. This curriculum will use the research and teaching methods associated with healthcare PPPs, combining The Bartlett’s studies of infrastructure investment, finance, and governance with healthcare issues. Further, the Centre will act as a convening mechanism, bringing together high-level executives from across borders and across sectors, including public and private sector executives, graduate students, and constituent donor organizations. Together, they will address the world’s most pressing healthcare challenges: non-communicable diseases, aging populations, and Covid-19. In the process, the Joint Centre will seek to change the way we think about healthcare to include not only medical, scientific, and public health concerns, but also infrastructural and economic ones as well.
