Saving Women’s Lives from Cancer Initiative

August 24, 2020

The Saving Lives from Women’s Cancer Initiative brought together representatives from multiple sectors including grant/philanthropic, government, development finance, and private capital investors to mobilize funding towards a multi-million-dollar blended financing Fund that will deploy grant and equity capital into women’s cancer initiatives in emerging markets. Participants engaged in a robust discussion, identifying how donor capital can catalyze additional investment, the role of the private sector in investments into cancer care, and how capital will be deployed to maximize the impact of investments.

This is the second in a series of virtual meetings dedicated to developing a sustainable financing fund to address women’s cancers.
