Global Health Investment Corporation (GHIC) is a nonprofit organization catalyzing the development of technologies to improve human health worldwide.
For nearly a decade, the Global Health Investment Corporation (GHIC) has been financing innovations in healthcare and life sciences. We pursue a double bottom line investment model to accelerate the development of technologies with the potential to both improve public health and generate financial returns. We strive to ensure that the technologies we support will be developed and made accessible to people who need them.
The COVID-19 pandemic clearly demonstrates how interconnected health outcomes are throughout the world. But it is just the latest example. Outbreaks of existing and emerging infectious diseases are inevitable, but we must stop them from becoming pandemics. Our goal is to address today’s global health and health security challenges, anticipate those of tomorrow, and invest in innovations that will lead to a healthier and safer world—for all of us.
Our investments focus on strengthening global health security and addressing other global health challenges, including infectious disease threats and maternal and child health.See our portfolio
Our namesake $108 million social impact investment fund (GHIF) has invested in twelve companies developing interventions such as diagnostics, devices, vaccines and therapeutics that target diseases that are most prevalent in low- and middle-income countries, such as HIV/AIDS, malaria, tuberculosis and cholera. The fund’s portfolio companies have successfully commercialized more than a dozen products that have been delivered to over 100 million people, improving and saving lives.
Our new partnership with the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA), within the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Preparedness and Response (ASPR) at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, uses venture capital practices to develop and commercialize technologies and medical products that respond to or prevent public health emergencies, such as pandemics and other global health security threats.
"Pathogens and health security threats constantly evolve. To combat them, we need to tap the most novel and impactful ideas in the entrepreneurial community." – BARDA Director, Gary Disbrow, PhD

Together, we’re improving global health and investing in a healthier, safer world.
