Global Health

Health Impact Fund (HIF)

Incentivizing the development of new medicines for the global poor.

HIF proposes a new way to pay for the development and delivery of pharmaceutical innovation. Under HIF, pharmaceutical firms would have the option of registering their new medicines with HIF and agreeing to provide them at cost anywhere they are needed. Instead of profiting through drug sales, they would be rewarded based on the global health impact of their drug. The project is led by ASAP President, Thomas Pogge and economist Aidan Hollis.

Ubuntu Health Impact Fund

The Ubuntu Health Impact Fund, a branch of HIF, aims to make important medicines more available to patients in Africa while supporting the pharmaceutical industry in the continent. This would result in low prices for patients and support both manufacturing and distribution. The Africa Pilot would offer rewards to manufacturers who supply products at a non-profit price, with the rewards allocated based on the health benefits of each product. This system incentivizes the production of important pharmaceuticals in Africa for sale to the patients who need them. Read more HERE
