What are challenges and opportunities for (impact)investors in this growth market?
A special session at TBLI CONFERENCE USA 2014 is dedicated to the opportunities and risks investors meet in the global health sector. Join speakers from The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Medical Credit Fund and Hearing Health Science in Workshop 8 on 29 May and explore the challenges of healthcare finance, especially in undeveloped markets.
The Medical Credit Fund will be discussed as an example of a blended capital approach that successfully lowers investment risks through public-private partnerships.
With a view to new technologies in the sector, another case study highlighted in the session is Hearing Health Science, a company addressing preventable hearing impairment. Hearing loss is seen as one of the most prevalent worldwide health impairments.
