A Coalition of Global Leaders in Health
The Health Finance Coalition (HFC) is a group of leading health donors, investors, and technical partners seeking to scale blended finance solutions to achieve SDG3 and Universal Health Coverage in Africa.
We need a new approach to financing global health.
Leverage private, return-seeking capital to achieve public health goals with a "Capital Stack" Approach
To achieve Africa’s health goals,
we must position private, return- seeking capital to co-invest alongside African governments and donors to scale transformative health innovations that serve the most vulnerable.
What we do
The gap between Africa’s health financing needs and current resources has only widened since the advent of COVID-19. To close the gap, we need a new approach: a robust pipeline of investable high-impact healthcare deals, capital that accepts realistic risk-adjusted returns, and blending through a “capital stack” approach.
We pursue this mission through following:
Construct transformative health deals that bring together the right operators, business models, creative capital, financing structures, and government stakeholders.
PUBLIC RESOURCE MOBILIZATION
Facilitate co-investment and engagement from African governments and multilateral donors to make the capital stack achievable.
Accelerate uptake of the capital stack approach among global leaders and catalyze large-scale action to unlock greater investment in health.
Open Doors African Private Healthcare Initiative
ODAPHI is an emergency loan guarantee facility making more than USD 35 million in loans available to private, small- and medium enterprise healthcare providers in five African countries in response to COVID-19. This is a partnership with the US Development Finance Corporation, USAID, PMI, Rockefeller Foundation, Skoll Foundation, MCJ Amelior Foundation, and the Medical Credit Fund.
To respond to the pressing financing gap for healthcare in Africa, the Health Finance Coalition is supporting the development and launch of the Transform Health Fund, a USD 100 million target fund that will invest in supply chain transformation and innovative care delivery models serving low-income patients. The Fund will be managed by leading impact investor, AfricInvest.
