IMPACT

Impact to date

Development impact motivates every decision we make. We measure the human and economic impact of our partnerships to ensure our guarantees protect lives and improve health.

Our development impact to date

Our guarantees are helping to save and protect peoples’ lives in more than 90 countries by making life-saving products more accessible. Guarantees accelerate access to innovative, effective products while securing long-term positive change in healthcare markets.  

To date (June 2022), we have executed seven guarantees, bringing healthcare products to hundreds of thousands of people. 

We screen all potential guarantees for development impact using our Development Impact framework. Read more below about the impact of our guarantees and the partnerships they support.
