The 1st International Forum of Public-Private Partnerships in Health for Bogota will be held from November 28 to 30 at the Salitre headquarters of the Chamber of Commerce. 

The event brings together the Bogota District Department of Health, the National Development and Health Cluster of Bogota, along with the support of the Bogota Chamber of Commerce and Invest in Bogota for the purpose of publicizing the characteristics of the six new hospital projects developed by the Mayor’s Office, the experiences of other countries and creating a space for discussion of everything related to the issue of health.
