About Triple I for Global Health
In recent years, the financial burden on the global health sector has increased, particularly in low- and middle–income countries. To meet the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, both public and private funds must be mobilized. In response, the Triple I for Global Health initiative was developed.
World leaders at the Hiroshima G7 Summit endorsed this initiative, emphasizing the important role of the private sector towards enabling sustainable financing in global health, including through impact investments.
In September 2023, the initiative was formally launched at the 78th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA 78) at an event titled “Toward more Resilient, Equitable and Sustainable Universal Health Coverage by 2030.” In his opening remarks, Mr. Fumio Kishida, Prime Minister of Japan, announced the launch of the initiative and encouraged investors, private companies and organizations to get involved.
