Opportunities and Challenges for Global Health Impact Investors

A collaboration between CASE, IPIHD, Calvert Foundation, and Investors’ Circle, produced as part of the Social Entrepreneurship Accelerator at Duke with funding from USAID,  this project set out to understand the landscape of current sources of debt and equity financing for global health enterprises in India and East Africa. Interviews with investors revealed two main challenges – a need for more coordination between active parties working in global health, and a mismatch between available capital and on the ground needs. To address these challenges, a two step framework was developed for evaluating health sector opportunities – understanding the market context using an ecosystem grid, and assessing the enterprise needs at their current stage of growth.
