Global health financing suffers from a mismatch of available capital and needs on the ground, which is indicative of the challenges investors face in navigating the global health investment landscape and in understanding the social and economic impacts of their investments.
The Baraka platform solves these challenges by bringing together impact investors, scientific experts, social entrepreneurs and innovators, and local support organizations to develop a meaningful pipeline of investments.
It combines the success of the existing Artha Platform - a network-driven, online impact investment platform - with detailed analytics on health needs and economic return, in order to maximize the impact of global health investments.
