With only 12 years left to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, the international community must innovate to bridge the funding gap and look into the solutions offered by new funding models. To succeed, it is imperative to understand how to better leverage private capital to find the annual $2.5 trillion of investments lacking to reach the global goals.
On the occasion of the 73rd United Nations General Assembly, Devex, MSD for Mothers, USAID, and the Global Financing Facility hosted a high-level event taking a closer look at what is needed to incentivize deeper engagement and which promising innovative financing models are ripe for government and private investor participation.
The event – co-hosted by the Global Financing Facility and USAID – aimed to highlight various innovative financing models and help foster deeper government and private investor participation in funding the health needs of people around the world.
A panel of leaders shared their experiences with different funding models – their advantages and challenges, barriers to mobilizing private capital at scale for health, and possible solutions for the way forward.
