    This chapter addresses the rise of Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) in Latin American health sectors, with a focus on Peru where health PPPs are high on the political agenda. It presents a literature review mapping the main debates over health PPPs, with a primary focus on hospital PPPs, including whether PPPs can deliver on the SDGs. Critiques of health PPPs discussion have focused on the extent to which they are able to produce positive development outcomes, including their ability to improve access, generate quality services, promote decent work, and reduce inequalities. Advocacy efforts supporting health PPPs take place at the global level and have also permeated Latin American health systems. The emerging role of health PPPs can be located in the broader context of a changing landscape of development and health finance over the past two decades, which has been marked by significant changes in social policy across the global South.
