According to the World Bank, private healthcare expenditures for the world population are on average $649 dollars per capita and forty-one percent of total healthcare expenditures. In Africa and the Caribbean the statistics are $45 dollars per capita and $272 dollars per capita respectively. As private expenditures continue to increase for developed countries such as the United States and Europe counterparts it is clear that building a network of private facilities with private expenditures could set new standards of care for local populations.
The Caribbean, where GoodWorks has been most active in this industry, has lead the way with an attempt by the various Caribbean national governments to focus on attracting private capital including an investment of $22 million by the International Finance Corporation in infrastructure in main tourist destinations in the Dominican Republic to provide high quality health facilities.
These healthcare facilities will not only address the needs of the citizens but will also provide high standards for wellness and health longevity facilities as an expansion of traditional tourism. GoodWorks is able to lend our expertise in consultations with Ministries of Health and other governmental bodies to facilitate investment opportunities in these facilities with the emphasis in, but not limited to substance abuse centers, cosmetic /elective surgery centers, recuperative spas and weight loss clinics.
