In a piece published on ImpactAlpha, Judd Staples, Assistant Director for Engagement and Partnerships at Innovations in Healthcare studies the ecosystems that support the scaling of innovative health solutions. Based on the findings of a recently released research brief, Staples describes how impact investors, funders and development finance institutions might coordinate their efforts and increase access to quality care in developing economies.

More than half the world’s population is blocked from receiving the essential healthcare services they need to flourish. In explaining the gap, he writes: "The complexity of global healthcare means there are many reasons, but an enormous one is the troubling fact that capital does not reach, at the necessary scale, innovative health ventures building sustainable solutions for impact in developing economies."
