Introducing the G7 Impact Investment Initiative for Global Health (Triple I for GH)

Naoki Ito Cabinet Secretariat, Government of Japan

・In recent years, the Health funding gap to achieve UHC and Pandemic Prevention Preparedness and Response (PPPR) has been increasing, due in part to global economic downturn and pressure on health budgets. Against this background, with a view to achieving Universal Health Coverage (UHC) the SDGs by 2030, it is essential to mobilize private capital through sustainable financing such as impact investments in addition to traditional public financing. In September 2023, “Triple I for GH”, the initiative endorsed at the G7 Hiroshima Summit was launched to address global health challenges through raising awareness, promoting and sharing best practices on impact investing in global health.
・Triple I for GH is a platform for individual investors, private companies, philanthropies, development finance institutions (DFIs), and other related organizations, and has grown from 37 partners at its launch at UNGA 2023 to 62 as of March this year.
・In this session, we aim to highlight the value of impact investment in global health for investment partners and society more broadly. The session will introduce Triple I and its activities against the three pillars of Triple I for GH:
1.Expand Visibility and Engagement of Impact Investing
2.Development of the Impact Investing Field
3.Promote the Roles of Governments and DFIs in Expanding Impact Invest
This session is an opportunity to share impact investment case studies and showcase the value and opportunities for collaboration among 1) investors, 2) project/business managers, and 3) development financial institution (and government) 4) implementing partners through Triple I for GH.
