Global Health Investment Fund 

Our namesake $108 million social impact fund (GHIF) invested in twelve companies developing clinical diagnostics, devices, vaccines, and therapeutics targeting infectious diseases that disproportionately burden 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.

Global Health Security Portfolio

In partnership with the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA), within the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response, at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, GHIC uses venture capital investments to support the development and commercialization of technologies 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 into the most novel and impactful ideas in the entrepreneurial community." – BARDA Director, Gary Disbrow, PhD
