Redefining Health Impact Investing: Addressing Market Failures and Charting Solutions

Edward Booty reach52

In the realm of impact investing, the intersection of health and finance presents both opportunities and challenges. Join us for a candid discussion delving into the market failures within health impact investing and exploring actionable strategies for addressing these shortcomings.

Contrary to its intended purpose, health impact investing often falls short of addressing the systemic issues plaguing healthcare access and delivery. This session will examine how the current investment landscape prioritises simplistic business models geared towards rapid scalability and maximum returns, often at the expense of more equitable and impactful interventions, that are deemed ‘too complex’.

We’ll unpack why traditional investment structures and mindsets hinder the flow of capital towards ventures that could make meaningful strides in improving health outcomes, particularly for underserved populations that need business model innovations the most. Through real-world examples and expert insights, attendees will gain a deeper understanding of the structural barriers that impede the success of health impact investments.

Furthermore, we’ll explore innovative approaches and alternative investment models that hold promise for fostering genuine systemic change in healthcare delivery. From advocating for concessionary terms to reimagining venture capital frameworks, this session aims to inspire actionable solutions that align financial incentives with social impact goals.

Whether you’re an investor, entrepreneur, or advocate, this session offers invaluable perspectives on reshaping the landscape of health impact investing for greater effectiveness and equity. Join us as we embark on a journey towards transforming market failures into opportunities for lasting social and health impact.
