Why is it challenging for some governments to engage in public private partnerships for oxygen delivery?

Public private partnerships are new and often, public procurement laws are geared towards buying and owning things- not getting services which is what PPPs are all about. The earliest PPPs, and maybe the most developed, in the UK were very much geared towards extremely large infrastructure projects so if you are looking at how to do PPPs, most likely you will get information or the tools on how to do a bridge, a port, an airport, or something like that. Services have not been the major concern of most of these PPPs and you will find that there is just not much experience. So, to do a successful PPP, it requires a lot of education or capacity-building for governments for them to understand what you are trying to do and to demonstrate the benefits.
