Blended Finance: Accelerating Innovations, Enabling Equity

Register Now

While India has made tremendous progress strengthening its healthcare system, ensuring access to affordable and quality healthcare to a population of over one billion population remains a challenge. Close to 63% of total health spending in India is out of pocket, depleting savings and leading to catastrophic healthcare expenses that push people into debt and poverty.

The public health emergency arising out of COVID-19 is a particular threat to the health outcomes of underserved populations, underscoring the need for close cooperation amongst stakeholders.

During this fireside chat, we will explore the need to accelerate innovations and channel private sector, bilateral and philanthropic resources through blended finance models that can augment healthcare infrastructure and health systems’ preparedness for improved health outcomes.

Moderated by Naina Subberwal Batra, Chairperson and CEO of AVPN, this webinar will hear from speakers Dr. Indu Bhushan, CEO, AB-PMJAY & NHA at the Government of India, and Edgard D. Kagan, Deputy Chief of Mission India of the U.S. Embassy in New Delhi. Key discussions points include:

  • Creating an enabling ecosystem for innovative healthcare enterprises to scale and generate sustainable impact for underserved communities.
  • Leveraging innovative blended finance solutions to mobilize alternate pools of capital and unlock existing resources in healthcare meaningfully.
  • Accelerating collaborations amongst public and private players and promoting cooperation between all stakeholders, innovators, and donors.
This is the final edition of a 3-part webinar series supported by AVPN PAHAL Health Platform. The platform promotes shared-value partnerships, fosters innovations, and aligns capital to improve health outcomes.
