Nick Bennett

Senior Health Investment Associate

Nick Bennett is a Senior Health Investment Associate at MedAccess, working within the Health Investments team to identify, develop, and execute transactions where innovative finance can help to unlock access to lifesaving medicines, vaccines, and diagnostic products.

In his role, Nick is responsible for undertaking the feasibility analysis and due diligence required to identify and scope new opportunities, building the proposition, and working closely with partner organisations to take transactions through to execution.

Immediately prior to MedAccess, Nick was part of the Resource Mobilisation Private Sector Partnerships and Innovative Finance team at Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, where he was responsible for securing resources from government, philanthropic and private sector donors to support Gavi’s mission. His role included a specific focus on partnership creation with private sector organisations, extending beyond donor-funding to explore opportunities that harness the skills and expertise of the private sector to support vaccine access, from demand generation through to cold chain innovation.

Nick is driven personally and professionally by his interest in equitable access to essential products and services. Prior to Gavi, he led partnership development in East Africa and the US for Cambridge based non-profit tech company Simprints, focussing on the use of technology to improve effectiveness and accountability of global health and development programmes.

Nick holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Immunology from the University of Sydney and a Postgraduate Diploma in Health & Medical Science from the University of Notre Dame Australia.

Nick is a Board member for Health Access Connect, a non-for-profit organisation that links remote communities to healthcare in Uganda. His research on pre-hospital paediatric airway management has been published in the Emergency Medicine Journal and Critical Care.
