Creed Healthcare Holdco Ltd (which may be also referred to as “North Africa Hospital Holdings”) is a newly formed regional healthcare holding company, established in Malta, to invest in hospital assets in Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco, and Algeria. The Company has acquired majority stakes in 4 hospitals (“Cleopatra Hospital” and “Cairo Medical Centre” in Egypt, and “Polyclinique Taoufik” and “Clinique de la Soukra” in Tunisia), and may acquire additional healthcare assets in its target countries.
EBRD provides USD 25 million in equity financing alongside Abraaj’s APEF IV and ANAF2 private equity funds, DEG, and Proparco. EBRD ownership stake to be 12.5%.
USD 200 million.
Categorised B. Due diligence of Abraaj's environmental and social risk management capacities (under the Abraaj North Africa Fund II) and the four hospitals (under this project) was undertaken jointly with DEG and Proparco in accordance with IFC EHS Guidelines for Health Care Facilities. The ESDD involved reviews of the completed environmental and social checklists specific for health care facilities, medical expert reports and life and fire safety reports on Cleopatra, CMC and Taoufik sub-investments as well as EBRD’s environmental specialist's site visits with a JCI expert to Taoufik and La Soukra hospitals in Tunisia. The due diligence showed that there are no site specific environmental and social issues associated with the existing target hospitals, and no significant labour and OHS issues associated with their operations and that all known future sub-projects would be category B projects if directly financed by the Bank. Abraaj has the capacity to manage E&S issues in accordance with the EBRD Performance Requirements.
The two hospitals in Tunisia are already implementing adequate environmental, health and safety management system. A site-specific Environmental and Social Action Plan has been developed for each hospital sub-investment for attaining international hospital management benchmarks such as JCI and HAS. The client is required to implement specific Environmental and Social Procedures for the existing and possible additional future target hospital sub-investments including pre-acquisition Environmental and Social due diligence of all potential future acquisitions.

Independent Project Accountability Mechanism (IPAM)
If efforts to address environmental, social or public disclosure concerns with the Client or the Bank are unsuccessful (e.g. through the Client’s Project-level grievance mechanism or through direct engagement with Bank management), individuals and organisations may seek to address their concerns through the EBRD’s Independent Project Accountability Mechanism (IPAM).
IPAM independently reviews Project issues that are believed to have caused (or to be likely to cause) harm. The purpose of the Mechanism is: to support dialogue between Project stakeholders to resolve environmental, social and public disclosure issues; to determine whether the Bank has complied with its Environmental and Social Policy or Project-specific provisions of its Access to Information Policy; and where applicable, to address any existing non-compliance with these policies, while preventing future non-compliance by the Bank.
Please visit the Independent Project Accountability Mechanism webpage to find out how to submit a Request for review through our confidential online form, by email, mail or telephone. IPAM is available to discuss your concerns and answer any questions you may have about the submission or handling of Requests, which follow the Project Accountability Policy and Guidance. Requestors’ identities may be kept confidential, upon request.
