Sub-Saharan African countries suffer from the most severe shortage of health workers in the world and face systemic financing challenges. As a result, many community health programs remain fragmented or trapped in the pilot phase due to insufficient or inaccessible international and domestic funding. The Financing Alliance for Health (FAH) is an African-led partnership that acts as a facilitator between finance and health representatives in both national and subnational governments. Through innovative financing pathways and private sector involvement, FAH helps governments strengthen and scale their community healthcare systems for better health outcomes and return on investment.
We invest in FAH as part of LGT Venture Philanthropy’s healthcare strategy to focus on models that deploy impact-generating, cost-effective community healthcare solutions for underserved communities. Long-term sustainability is contingent on government having the capacity to adopt and replicate these models on a national scale. We provide comprehensive support across three areas:
total stakeholders engaged
stakeholders trained/capacity built
Building on their ongoing institutional capacity support, LGT Venture Philanthropy continues to be a holistic partner at this critical inflection point of our growth and strategy.
