Introduction: During recent years, cost of health sector has grown rapidly and it seems this trend to continue which will threat government in providing required budget. In addition, while the quality of government services is not desirable, services by private sector are highly costly and do not meet social benefits. Public private partnership schemes are among the suggested ways to overcome these problems. Economic theory predicts that public private partnership could lead to better results. Method: Although the issue is multidimensional problem, in our research we studied for topics including law base, juridical system, authorities’ responsibilities and price regulation by asking the experts. Results: The price regulation was in a better situation and other parameters including law base, juridical system and responsibility of authorities were somehow the same. Comparing estimated score of Iran and Latin Amercan countries showed that Iran could be ranked in the middle of the mentioned countries. The study in hospital sector showed that 58% agree that current budget allocation was not suitable and 62% of experts thought that public private partnership would lead to better result if institutional base be ready. Discussion and Conclusion: If the regulatory and institutional framework of the country become improved, public private partnership would be a good aproach for investment in health sector of Iran.
