All emerging market health-care investors are welcome to join Investors for Health (I4H), a newish community of 30+ investors including development banks, private equity, venture capital and impact funds. The group aims to jointly focus on private healthcare development in emerging markets with a focus on equity and alignment with universal healthcare cover. It next meets at HBI 2020, April 20-22, London. Its formation reflects a quiet revolution in the role of for-profit healthcare and its importance in bridging the World Health Organisation's estimated $686bn funding gap in low-and-middle-income countries to achieve the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goal #3 (“Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages”).
