The Unicase Team provided legal support by reviewing, analysing, revising the existing draft concession agreement, tender documentation, such as the direct agreement, and revising other documentation to get a bankable facility management PPP under the Kazakhstan legal framework, procurement structure, etc. The Team also supported the Client with drafting amendments to the legislation on concessions, Health Code, and budget laws. We continued providing support until we had the agreement signed, including supporting the Ministry, KPPF, and the Commission on Concession Projects of Special Importance during negotiations, assessments, analysis, amendments, and other additions to the direct agreement.

The Project involved extensive legislative work and hundreds of amendments to the Kazakhstan legislation, which the Team coped with just brilliantly.
The Kazakhstan Republic Health Ministry implements the Project as a public-private partnership under the concession agreement. It is anticipated that the Project will influence hundreds of thousands of people, contributing to the development of healthcare, medical education, and medical science in the country. The Project includes financing, creating, and operating social infrastructure and life support facility.
The Kazakh National Medical University will take on medical services and will be responsible for the hospital function. The following positive outcomes are expected after the Project is up:
