The attached research report, “Impact Investment Landscape for Women’s Health – Spotlight on Colombia and Peru,” represents the culmination of a project supported by the Linked Foundation and conducted by the William Davidson Institute (WDI) at the University of Michigan. We are so very grateful to have worked with Andrea Bare and Nora Quesada from WDI who designed, conducted and authored this research. We invested in this undertaking because we were looking for more effective ways to understand and share the regional opportunities and challenges to investing in improving the health and economic self-reliance of women and their families in Latin America; work that the Linked Foundation has been committed to for 12 years. It is a useful resource for those who have a similar focus.
We believe a regional approach for women’s health in Latin America is likely to generate a more robust pipeline of potential investment, grant, and blended financing opportunities, as detailed in the report. Our hope is that our findings will help move the field forward in the area of women’s health and prompt collaboration with other funders and investors who are interested in continuing to create and increase access to women’s health.
We invite you to download the report, share with your colleagues and networks, or get in touch with Nancy Swanson from Linked Foundation or Andrea Bare from the William Davidson Institute with any questions or interest in collaborating on related work.
