Alternative Finance Mechanisms for Global Health
Despite tremendous progress over the past two decades, global health research and practice remains deeply underfunded. The aim of this project is to examine alternative mechanisms to finance global health public goods, including strengthening public health infrastructure and intervention capacity. Existing and innovative financing instruments being explored include impact investing, advanced market commitments, and blended finance mechanisms such as social, development and humanitarian impact bonds.
This project establishes the Working Group on Alternative Finance Mechanisms for Global Health and convene a workshop on impact bonds and blended finance instruments to fund treatment, prevention and adaptation interventions that address the health impacts of climate change.
