The In­fra­struc­ture De­liv­ery Di­vi­sion (IDD) of the DBSA is a rel­a­tively new di­vi­sion es­tab­lished to ac­cel­er­ate the im­ple­men­ta­tion of in­fra­struc­ture pro­grammes.

“We deal with a va­ri­ety of in­fra­struc­ture projects,” says Bhabha. “From a so­cial in­fra­struc­ture per­spec­tive we are in­volved with the con­struc­tion and re­fur­bish­ment of clin­ics, the re­fur­bish­ment of hos­pi­tals, emer­gency re­pairs in hos­pi­tals and schools, as well as gen­eral school re­pairs and re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion.”
