Healthcare entrepreneurs in low- and middle-income countries need growth capital to build their capacity and expand their social impact. Yet, because innovations are still nascent, these enterprises are often unable to absorb significant traditional capital. Recognizing this gap in funding, the Pfizer Foundation launched the Global Health Innovation Grants (GHIG) program in 2016 to deploy funding and support for healthcare enterprises around the world. Innovations in Healthcare serves as project advisor to GHIG and measures both grantee and portfolio performance of the program.
