The world’s first development finance institution.

MedAccess was incorporated in November 2017 with initial capital of $200 million from CDC Group.

Established in 1948 and owned entirely by the UK Government, the core mission of CDC is to support the building of businesses throughout Africa and South Asia, to create jobs, and to make a lasting difference to people’s lives in some of the world’s poorest places.

The institution invests in countries where the private sector is weak, jobs are scarce, and the investment climate is difficult. CDC is outcome-driven, so is particularly focused on sectors where economic growth leads to jobs. These sectors include financial services, infrastructure, health, manufacturing, food and agriculture, construction and real estate, and education.

CDC works in close partnership with the businesses and funds it invests in, providing practical support to help achieve good environmental, social and business integrity standards. Through hands-on support, CDC believes businesses become stronger, which in time helps them become more attractive to other investors.
